Does Canada have the Most Freshwater in the World?

Freshwater is the natural resources that are valuable to our life. Even though 2/3 of our earth are dominated by water, but only 1% water that are able to consume for our daily life. 

Such as cooking, washing the clothes, drinking, and many things. 

Many people think that Canada have the most freshwater in the world. If you are part of those people who believe that fact, then you must elate to know the shocking fact that Canada is not the country that have the most freshwater in the world. 

Canada does have rich freshwater resources with around 20% of all freshwater in the world. However, even though Canada have much pretty high percentage, Canada is not ranked second, in fact the third country. 

Then, which countries who ranked first and second that have the most freshwater in the world? 

Country Total Renewable Fresh Water (Cu Km) 
Brazil 8233 
Russia 4507 
Canada 2902 

According to the table above, Brazil is at the first rank who have the most freshwater with capacity of 8233 (CU KM) and followed by Russia with the amount 4507 (CU KM). 

Our earth has 326 million gallons of water. If calculated as a percentage, our water source comes from: 

Source Gallons Percentage 
Oceans 316,872,000,000,000,000,000 97,2% 
Glaciers 6,846,000,000,000,000,000 2,1% 
Groundwater 2,119,000,000,000,000,000 0,65% 
Lakes 55,420,000,000,000,000 0,017% 
Soil Moisture 16,300,000,000,000,000 0,005% 
Streams, wetlands and swamps 3.260,000,000,000,000 0,001% 
Total 326,000,000,000,000,000,000 100% 


Even though that our earth has 326 trillion of water, only 1% is freshwater. Freshwater are coming from glaciers, groundwater, and lakes. That three water sources are the great water that we can consume and for our daily needs. Otherwise, the rest of sources are still in develop by researchers so we can use it for our needs. 

Water is valuable to our life, which is why we have to protect the existence of our freshwater as they are not endless supply.
