World Factbook Updates - July 18, 2013
- In the Geography section, the "Freshwater withdraw" entry has been updated with the latest available data. For many countries, the use and consumption of freshwater is difficult to quantify yet it is a vital resource often under stress. Withdrawal data are compiled by USDA/FAO from national statistical bureaus and independent research projects, and are updated in the Factbook as they become available.
