Personal Water Footprint

Personal Water Foot Print

Your individual water footprint is equal to the water required to produce the goods and services consumed by you. Please take your time and feel free to use the extended water footprint calculator developed by the researchers at UNESCO-IHE to assess your own unique water footprint. The calculations are based on the water requirements per unit of product as in your country of residence.
Note: put decimals behind a point, not a comma (e.g. write 1.5 and not 1,5).
