Name Renewable Freshwater Resources
Short Description Renewable freshwater resources available on the spatial unit
Definition The data in the RenewableFreshwaterResources table provides an overview of renewable freshwater resources available on the spatial unit (SU, RBD or country) and of their different flows (internal flow and actual external inflow).

By definition, the concept of renewable resources excludes non-renewable resources available from the potential use of water reserves (essentially groundwater).
Methodology for obtaining data The data definitions and methodology follow those of the “OECD/Eurostat Joint Questionnaire on Inland Waters” Table 1.

The preferred spatial resolution is sub-unit (SU) or river basin district (RBD). Reporting at country level is possible, if higher resolution data is not available, or if the spatial coverage of the higher resolution data is incomplete (e.g. missing data for a given parameter in some RBDs).

The preferred temporal resolution is monthly. Reporting quarterly or annual data is possible, if monthly data is not avaliable (e.g. no monthtly data for a given parameter or a given RBD).

Avaliable data should nevertheless be reported at the highest possible spatial and temporal resolutions.

Volume values must be reported in million cubic metre.

Each record in this table must have a unique combination of the values in the fields "spatialUnitIdentifier", "spatialUnitIdentifierScheme", "observedProperty" and "phenomenonTimePeriod".
