Region Profile: Climate, Geography, Socio-Economic Context

Region Profile: Water Bodies and Resources

Overall, Latin America is the richest region in terms of available freshwater resources per capita. The richness of the region is, however, under increasing human and climatic pressures. Progress towards reaching water- and sanitation-related Millennium Development Goals, wide recognition of the concept of integrated water resources management, and a decrease in poverty are a few of the encouraging signs that the region will be able to overcome these pressures.
