A national water footprint consists of two parts, an internal and an external footprint. The internal footprint is the water consumption of the population in the country and the external footprint is the water consumption that affects other countries. What is a Individual Footprint?A individual water footprint refers to the volume of water that has been produced and consumed by an individual.In the Fiji Islands, the average water footprint per capita is 1767 m³/yrThe Australian average water footprint per capita is 2315 m³/yr.The difference between Fijis water footprint and Australias is 548 m³/yr, this means Australians use 548 m³/yr more than a person in living in the Fiji Islands. Sara Lenehans water footprint:575 m³/yrThe results of Sara Lenehans water footprint are surprising when compared to the Fiji Islands as they are so much lower.In Australia, we rely very much on water usage and consumption. Using appliances such as washing machines, dishwashers, and consuming water. People living in the Fiji Islands do not have as many luxuries and some people do not even have running water in their houses. In Australia we use water very freely and do not think about countries that only have a small limited amount of water they can use.
