Abstract

Irrigation is the most important water use sector accounting for about 70 percent of the global freshwater withdrawals and 90percent of consumptive water uses. While the extent of irrigation and related water uses are reported in statistical databases or estimated by model simulations, information on the source of irrigation water are still very rare. Here we present a new global inventory on the extent of areas irrigated with groundwater based on available sub-national data.
