The water footprint of national consumption refers to the total amount of fresh water that is used to produce the goods and services consumed by the inhabitants of the nation. It includes two components: the part of the footprint that falls inside the country (internal water footprint) and the part of the footprint that presses on other countries in the world (external water footprint). Please find below the water footprint of your country of interest.

Global average water footprint (for comparison):
1385 m³/yr per capita
