Water Footprint Network @WaterFootprintN - #water #sustainability
The mission of the Water Footprint Network is to promote the transition towards sustainable, fair and efficient use of fresh water resources worldwide by:
advancing the concept of the ‘water footprint’, a spatially and temporally explicit indicator of direct and indirect water use of consumers and producers;
increasing the water footprint awareness of communities, government bodies and businesses and their understanding of how consumption of goods and services and production chains relate to water use and impacts on fresh-water systems; and
encouraging forms of water governance that reduce the negative ecological and social impacts of the water footprints of communities, countries and businesses.
