Thirsty Energy

Editors Note: This infographic illustrates the interlinkages between water and energy -- the theme of this year’s World Water Day -- and highlights the effects of the increasing demand for both on the global supply of finite freshwater resources. It was created for the World Bank’s Thirsty Energy initiative and originally appeared here. To learn more about the upcoming World Water Day (this Saturday, March 22) and to view a listing of worldwide events, visit UN Water's official web site for the celebration.
