We see a growing number of countries where national debates are starting on how to apply the water footprint in informing governmental policy and corporate strategy. In Spain there is quite a community discussing the topic, at universities and within government. In Brazil and Chile there are forums where representatives from all sectors of society participate. Etc. In order to facilitate those national debates, the Water Footprint Network has started to create national professional forums at LinkedIn. Feel free to join if you are interested. There are Water Footprint groups now for: India, Brazil, Colombia, Spain, and Italy. If you have interest in having a national forum for debate for another country, let me know.
