WaterStat is the world’s most comprehensive water footprint database. All datasets included come from peer-reviewed research and are based on the Global Water Footprint Assessment Standard. Water footprint statistics can be used to inform public policies or company business strategies, to raise awareness, or as input to research projects.
Water footprint statistics have many uses – in Water Footprint Assessment studies, awareness raising and research projects, to inform public policies or company business strategies. Because the water footprint statistics have been formulated using the same methodology – the Global Water Footprint Standard – they are comparable and can be used to tell the complex story of water. WaterStat is the world’s most comprehensive water footprint database. WaterStat currently includes six datasets:
1) Product water footprint statistics
2) Monthly blue water footprint (30×30 grid scale)
3) National water footprint statistics
4) International virtual water flow statistics
5) Water scarcity statistics
6) Water pollution level statistics
All data included in WaterStat comes from peer-reviewed research. Additional water data will be added as they become available.
