The charts below show the percentage of water used for different purposes in six areas of the world.
Summarize the information by selecting and reporting the main features and make comparisons where relevant.
Write at least 150 words.
The pie charts describe the water consumption rates in six regions of the world, divided into three categories namely industrial use, agricultural use and domestic use. Overall, patterns of water consumption in North America and Europe share a similar affinity while those of water consumption in the four other regions varied.
In North America and Europe, the water used for industry kept the highest figures accounting for half of the total use of water (48% and 53% respectively), followed by the proportions of water used in agriculture making up roughly one-third of the total water consumption (39% and 32% respectively). By contrast, the proportions of water used for agriculture held the lowest rates of the total (13% and 15% respectively).
With regard to the other four regions, it is noticeable that the largest portions of water use were for agriculture, dominating the total water consumption (71%, 81%, 84% and 88% of agricultural use of water for South America, Southeast Asia, Africa and Central Asia respectively). However, no more than 12% of water used for industrial purposes in these four regions and only South America had the percentage of household water consumption of more than 10%. And, the remainder three regions had the domestic use rates of well under 10% which was in stark contrast with those of North America and Europe.
