Water availability (water_availability)

Spatial distribution of water availability for fish ponds. Map derived from the combined suitability of annual rainfall with density of perennial streams and rivers. Annual rainfall interpreted as rainfall runoff to fill fishponds. Mean annual precipitation data for Africa were obtained from UNEP/GRID in Nairobi and was developed for the Global Assessment of Soil Degradation (GLASOD) using data from 1951-1980. A digital map of perennial streams and rivers was generated by ESRI (1984).
