Abstract: "Virtual water refers to the volume of water used to produce agricultural commodities. When these commodities enter the world market, trade in virtual water takes place. This report argues that the role of virtual water trade in global water use is modest, since most trade takes place, and will continue to take place, between water abundant countries."
