Abstract: Georeferenced country statistics of irrigation for the African continent.
Lineage: This dataset supplements the text of the report, "Irrigation in Africa in
figures: AQUASTAT Survey - 2005" which can be downloaded at the website listed below. The report resembled the previous report "Irrigation

updating of data and in the trends in the last ten years.
