The graphs show information about water use globally and water consuming by people in two different countries.
Overall, the charts compare the amount of water used for agriculture, industry, and homes around the world, and water use in Brazil and the Democratic Republic of Congo.
As per the information, in 1900, around 500 km3 of water was used by the agriculture sector globally. For industrial and domestic water consumption stood at around one fifth of that amount. In 2000, global water use for agriculture head increased to around 3000 km3, industrial water use had risen to just under half that amount, and domestic consumption had reached approximately 500 km3. The populations were 176 million and 5.2 million respectively. Water consumption per person in Brazil at 359 m3, was much higher than in the Congo only 8 m3.
A closer looked at the overall, global water rose significantly between 1900 and 2000, and then agriculture accounted for the largest proportion of water used. We can also see that water consumption was considerably higher in Brazil than in the Congo.
