The Graph and Table Below Give Information About Worldwide Water Use

The graph and table below give information about worldwide water use and consumption in two different countries. Summarise the information by selecting and reporting the main features and make comparisons where relevant.

The graph and table below give information about worldwide water use and consumption in two different countries.The given line graph delineates how much global water was used in three distinct sectors between 1990 and 2000. The table compared water consumption in Brazil and the democratic republic of Congo in 2000.

Overall, it is clear that water consumption increased in all three sectors, but agriculture took more than others. On the other hand, Brazil contributed the least to Congo in water consumption.

An in-depth analysis shows that agriculture was the largest consuming industry, using about 500 km3 of water in 1990, and the ratio dramatically increased to 3000 km in the year 2000. Less than 1000 km3 was used for both industrial and domestic use in 1990, until 1950, the number rose significantly, whereas eventually, by 2000, reaching roughly about 1000 km3 for the former and 500 km3 for the latter.

Coming to water consumption in 2000, the population was 176 million in Brazil, and the figure was very less, which was 5.2 million in Congo. Brazil had 26,500 km2 of irrigated land and a water consumption per person of 359 m3. In comparison, the corresponding figures for Congo were only 100 km2 and 8 km3. This made Brazil a much larger water user than Corgo.
