GLRPPR Sector Resource: Water Footprint Network

Title:
Water Footprint Network

Abstract:
Created in 2002 by Arjen Hoekstra, the water footprint is one of the family of environmental footprints that help us understand how our production and consumption choices are affecting natural resources. As population grows and the standard of living increases for many people, the water footprint tells us how much water is used each and every day in all our activities, such as for producing our food and to clothe us, and indicates the pressure we exert on our freshwater resources. Includes tools for calculating water footprints for businesses, products, and individuals.
