Indicator 6.3.2 (a)

Indicator 6.3.2 (a)

Proportion of bodies of water with good ambient water quality, %

The indicator is defined as the proportion of water bodies in the country that have good ambient water %quality. Ambient water quality refers to natural, untreated water in rivers, lakes and groundwaters and represents a combination of natural influences together with the impacts of all anthropogenic activities. The indicator relies on water quality data derived from in situ measurements and the analysis of samples collected from surface and groundwaters.
