This fact sheet summarizes a recent technical note entitled "Water Footprint Estimation in Latin America", which analyzes the water footprint of Brazil, Colombia, and Costa Rica. The fact sheet gives a broad overview of the methodology used in the analysis and describes trends in sectoral water consumption in the three countries between 2013 and 2017, highlighting disparities in water consumption across economies. In the face of climate change, it is important that more countries disclose environmental-economic accounting data to facilitate such analyses across the Latin America and the Caribbean. The fact sheet also provides a link to the technical note.
