Virtual Water

Title:
Virtual Water
Description:

Virtual water refers to the practice of trading commodities that contain water. It's oftentimes not easy to trade water from one country to another because of various political obstacles and because it is difficult to transport water. But, consider that a country trades wheat, and up to 1,300 liters of water go into growing a kilogram of wheat. In essence, that country trades water.
