The water problem, along with other things, is becoming the biggest challenge of the century.
It is called, "The war of the 20s begins over oil. The 21st-century war is about water."
Water pollution is increasing around the world and the population is increasing. Desertification is progressing due to the decline of forest resources, and economic disparity is creating a difference between those who have water and those who do not.

This concept is called virtual water, and we are importing the water from the land where the products are made.
In addition, those products may cause water pollution. The environmental load of all water used in a series from production to disposal is called the water footprint, and calculations are currently being started using various methods.
How should water use be for the world to be sustainable? OSINTech 's RuleWatcher ™ will keep track of the criteria for calculating water-related evaluations and treaties.
