TARGET AUDIENCE

Quality, Environmental, purchasing, traders and managers responsible for goods/services who need to gain an understanding of the concept of WFP, or would like to conduct the WFP inventory/assessment to meet the clients/buyers’ requirements, or have an interest in the WFP verification process.

BACKGROUND

Water scarcity and drought are crucial challenges all around the world and will be even further exacerbated due to climate change and population growth. People utilize water for drinking, cooking and washing, but even more for producing things. The water footprint is an indicator of water use that looks at both direct and indirect water use of a consumer or producer. The water footprint of an individual, community or business is defined as the total volume of freshwater that is used to produce the goods and services consumed by the individual or community or produced by the business.

The interest in the water footprint is rooted in the recognition that human impacts on freshwater systems can ultimately be linked to human consumption, and that issues like water shortages and pollution can be better understood and addressed by considering production and supply chains as a whole.
