Tunisia’s economy is dominated by the service sector (accounting for over 60% of GDP), including tourism. Petroleum products account for over 11% of exports. Other inmportant sectors are industry (25% of GDP) agriculture (around 11% of GDP) and mining.

Tunisia has the highest access rates to water supply and sanitation in the Middle East and North Africa. Access to safe drinking water became close to universal, approaching 100% in urban areas and 94% in rural areas. With its semi-arid to arid climate, surface water resources are scarce in the south of the country, but the northern coastal region has relatively abundant rainfall and surface water resources .  Groundwater is the main source of water – both shallow renewable and deep, often non-renewable groundwater. Over 75% of groundwater is used by agriculture; most of the rest is for domestic supply. Uncontrolled over-abstraction of groundwater, largely for irrigation by small farmers, is causing over-exploitation of aquifers in some areas.
