Water is an extremely important element for all humans in the world. People use water for many purposes, such as drinking, cooking and washing. However, over the last five years, water shortage has become one of the main threats to humanity. Water scarcity, as a result of poor water management and climate change, has caused society to become more concerned about the sustainability of water resources. Therefore, the concept of water footprint (WF) was introduced to study the relationships between human consumption and water usage as well as between global trading and water resource management.
