In most regions of the world, over 70 percent of freshwater is used for agriculture. By 2050, feeding a planet of 9 billion people will require an estimated 50 percent increase in agricultural production and a 15 percent increase in water withdrawals.

Really useful slide as it highlights the regional disparity. Tariq, would you also have information which superimposes water usage against agricultural production regionally on an annual basis over the past decade. This should hopefully highlight water efficiency. Also, is Australia part of East Asia & Pacific?
