Study by goodstuffinternational: Water Footprint of Porce river basin (Colombia) shows green water scarcity and pollution main issues of concern

Water Footprint of Porce river basin (Colombia) shows green water scarcity and pollution main issues of concern (study by goodstuffinternational) Results from the Water Footprint Assessment applied to the Porce river basin, Colombia, show that the basin has no blue water stress, but it does undergo significant levels of green water scarcity (competition for different uses of land and green water resources) and water pollution in some of Porce's subbasins. The economic and social sustainability assessment of the water footprints shows the contrast between the economic activities in the basin and its financial retributions, and the number of people living within the basin with no access to drinking water and/or sanitation. It points towards a water governance issue.
