Mean annual blue water footprint of national consumption per capita (1996-2005)

This layer represents estimation of the mean annual blue water footprint of national consumption for the period 1996-2005. The water footprint is a measure of human’s appropriation of freshwater resources. The blue water footprint refers to consumption of blue water resources (surface and ground water). Estimations are given in cubic meter per capita per year. In the table, data are also available disaggregated per sectors: agricultural production, industrial production and domestic water use.

A detailed description of the methodology and results can be found in the main report available here: . For more information, visit the Water Footprint Network website:
