Abstract

The water footprint (WF) of a product refers to freshwater onsumed during production (1). We calculated bioenergy
WFs assuming crop water requirements are met (2); Jongschaap et al. (3) correctly point out that this is not always
true, giving an example for jatropha grown under poor, rainfed conditions in South Africa.
