Interactive map story - visualizing groundwater abstraction in Jordan

A new, interactive ‘map story’, using data and infographics, paints a picture of water scarcity across the Middle East, with a special focus on groundwater in Jordan. 


AQUASTAT, the Food and Agriculture Organization’s (FAO) global information system on water and agriculture, hosts this interactive feature presenting FAO WaPOR data used as a tool for the monitoring of groundwater resources ​for irrigated agriculture in the Azraq groundwater basin in Jordan.
