This is an MA project based on research carried out by Unesco and University of Twente in The Netherlands. The project aims to visualize the Water Footprint of 132 countries and to make tangible the impact of human consumption on global freshwater resources through a 900 pages book 230x300 x90mm), 8 maps (760x560mm), 3 models made of plexiglas (230x300mm) and a flash animation. People use lots of water for drinking, cooking and washing (water use for domestic needs is about 5% on aver. per cap.), but even more for producing things such as food, paper, cotton, clothes (95% on average per capita). To produce one kilogram of wheat we need about 1,000 litres of water, for meat we need about five to ten times more. Unesco researchers claim that the challenge is to start using the water footprint concept as a practical tool to analyze how countries can reduce the pressure on the domestic water resources, and how other countries can profit from their relative abundance of water by exporting water rich commodities.
