What is meant by Virtual Water?
Virtually every thing we do requires water. We all know about the water we use directly. Virtual water is that which is being used indirectly for various purposes.
Virtual water can be referred to as all the water that has been used to create particular good(s) or service(s) that we consume or use. The concept of virtual water can be illustrated and explain in the image below about a bowl of pasta. (Assumption is made that a bowl of pasta may contain 198 L of Virtual Water while only 2 L of water is enough to prepare it.)
