The Fact Sheets examine the trend in population growth, freshwater availability, and water use, highlighting the consumption trends of the most waterintensive sectors in each country. The desalination of each country is presented in terms of quantity produced, type of technology and type of feedwater used, and provides the predicted future desalination volume.
