AQUASTAT is FAO’s global sources of statistical data information system. It describes the state of water resources and agricultural water use in  each country. Special attention is given to the water resource, irrigation, and drainage sub-sectors.

COIN is a software program which enables the electronic management of a wide range of information about FAO Decentralized Offices which, can be accessed by a large community of users worldwide through the Internet. The information in the FAO Office box is generated by COIN. The CountrySTAT database provides access to statistics about production, prices, trade and consumption at national and subnational levels. The FAO Document Repository houses FAO documents and publications, as well as selected non-FAO publications, in electronic format. It enables users to easily access the accumulated knowledge and information produced by FAO directly on the Internet. FAO in Emergencies provides access to the FAO’s preparations and responses to food and agricultural threats and emergencies around the world. The content is coordinated by the Office of Strategic Planning of FAO.

FAOSTAT provides time-series and cross sectional data relating to food and agriculture for some 200 countries. In order to standardize and harmonize the vast quantity of terms used in FAO documents and publications, the Organization developed the terminology database FAOTERM. The Corporate NAMES OF COUNTRIES database also aims at facilitating the consultation and harmonization of country names throughout the Organization. Downloading options are available to enable the creation of customized country lists and databases. Each FACP summarizes the Department’s assessment of activities and trends in fisheries and aquaculture for the country concerned.
