Water is essential for the survival of every living thing and must be used in a sustainable manner. In many regions, human well-being and ecosystem health are being seriously affected by changes in the global water cycle, caused largely by human activities. Although freshwater is a local resource, water scarcity is the leading threat for global water crisis. To address this major environmental concern, water footprint (WF) was introduced to standardise analytical tools for freshwater use at the regional and global scale.
