AQUASTAT is FAO's global information system of water and agriculture developed by the Land
and Water Development Division of FAO. AQUASTAT provides users with comprehensive
statistics on the state of agricultural water management across the world, with emphasis
on developing countries and countries in transition.
The FAO Statistical Database is an on-line multilingual database currently containing over
1 million time-series records from over 210 countries and territories covering statistics
on agriculture, nutrition, fisheries, forestry, food aid, land use and population.
Provides statistics on crops, livestock, irrigation, land use, fertilizer, pesticide
consumption, and agricultural machinery
Provides statistics on commodities, food supply, food balance sheets, food aid,
population, and the Codex Alimentarius
Provides statistics on fish production and primary products
Provides statistics on imports and exports of woods and paper
Provides information from the CODEX ALIMENTARIUS: Pesticide Residues in Food, and CODEX
ALIMENTARIUS: Veterinary Drug Residues in Food
This database contains the number of people engaged in fishing according to the working
time devoted to the occupation, as national annual averages, from 1961 onwards. Starting
with data for 1990, the database includes employment in aquaculture and separates inland
and marine fisheries, on a gender disaggregated basis.
The system provides users with access to Fishery Statistics of various sorts. Any data
having time series structure can potentially be stored and processed by Fishstat Plus. The
system consists of the main module and the datasets. Each dataset can be installed and
uninstalled separately. See the list of available datasets below.
FORIS contains statistics on forest and forestry issues on a country by country
basis including forest cover, plantations, volume and biomass and fires.
The Global Livestock Production and Health Atlas (GLiPHA), is a user-friendly, highly
interactive electronic atlas using the Key Indicator Display System (KIDS) developed by
FAO. The atlas provides a scaleable overview of spatial and temporal variation of
quantitative information related to animal production and health through the combination
of maps, tables and charts.
Land resource potential and constraints statistics at country and regional level.
Statistics are based on various small scale maps and inventories that were not always up
to date, reliable or both.
