Dataset for Country Level Water Withdrawals in Belt and Road Region (2015)

Dataset for Country Level Water Withdrawals in Belt and Road Region (2015)

Firstly, country-wise sectorial water withdrawal data are collected from FAO AQUASTAT database, Peter Gleick’s water use data, country statistics and literatures. In order to get consistent data, all data are unified to 2015 due to inconsistent times. For the data of year 2013-2017 close to 2015, the values of these years are directly used as water withdrawals of 2015. For the others, GDP, population, temperature, precipitation, irrigation area, carbon dioxide emission, nighttime light index, coal production, urban population corresponding to the water use data of different years in each country are collected, the panel data regression model of fixed effect and random effect between industrial water, agricultural water and domestic water and these factors are established, respectively. Sectorial water withdrawals in 2015 are estimated for every country.
