According to data collected by Eurostat, there is a category in which Croatia takes the lead in the European Union – it has the largest resources of fresh water per inhabitant, reports Index on October 5, 2017.

According to one of the key indicators in measuring the sustainability of water supply in any given country, Croatia places first on the list with 27.330 cubic metres of fresh water per capita. Finland and Sweden take second and third place with around 20.000 cubic metres of fresh water per capita, followed by Latvia, Slovenia, Slovakia, Bulgaria and Hungary.

Malta has the scarcest resources of fresh water among all EU countries with 220 cubic metres per inhabitant, placing in the category of countries subjected to ‘water stress’ – those whose annual fresh water resources rank below 1700 cubic metres per capita. Apart from Malta, countries experiencing water stress include Poland, Czech Republic and Cyprus.

Considering that tens of thousands of Croats leave the country every day, there is no doubt that the ratio of water resources per inhabitant will keep growing by the day. Apart from exporting people, we should think about exporting fresh water as well – a thing that, unlike the mass exodus, might bring substantial profit to Croatia.
