Drinking water

6.1.1 Proportion of population using safely managed drinking water services in Slovenia, progress over time

6.1.1 Proportion of population using safely managed drinking water services in Slovenia, by service level and location (2020)

Sanitation and hygiene

6.2.1a Proportion of population using safely managed sanitation services in Slovenia, progress over time

6.2.1a Proportion of population using safely managed sanitation services in Slovenia, by service level and location (2020)

6.2.1b Proportion of population with a handwashing facility with soap and water available at home in Slovenia, by service level and location (2020)

Water quality and wastewater

6.3.1 Proportion of wastewater flow (safely) treated > Domestic in Slovenia (2020), compared to other countries (and areas) in the region

6.3.1 Proportion of wastewater flow (safely) treated in Slovenia, by source (2020 - 2015)

6.3.2 Level 1 Proportion of bodies of water with good ambient water quality in Slovenia (2017 - 2020), compared to other countries (and areas) in the region

Water use and scarcity

Water resources and withdrawal in Slovenia, total and per capita

Long-term average annual precipitation in depth: 1,162 (mm/year) (2017)

Renewable water resources: 15,322 m3 per capita (2017)

Water withdrawal: 427 m3 per capita (2016)

Environmental flow requirements: 53 % of the renewable water resources (2017)

6.4.2 Level of water stress: freshwater withdrawal as a proportion of available freshwater resources in Slovenia, change over time, compared to other countries (and areas) in the region

6.4.1 Change in water-use efficiency over time in Slovenia, by sector (2016)

Water-use efficiency for ‘Agriculture, forestry and fishing’ only takes into account the proportion of gross value added that comes from irrigated agriculture, since that activity is associated with water withdrawal (other activities are rain-fed).
