  • Increasing demand of animal products will have direct and indirect consequences on the sustainability of water use in many locations
  • Climate change consequences may dramatically influence water and feed availability, crop yields and the supply of high quality freshwater to poultry farms
  • Water Footprint indicators system offers a framework for analysing the impacts of poultry production on water resources
  • Corresponding data should help managers, producers and consumers understanding water use in all aspects of the value chain, and implementing targeted water-savings measures to promote the water efficiency of the entire poultry sector
