Most of the definitions presented in the glossary have been taken from the Water Footprint Manual (Hoesktra et al., 2011), the European Water Framework Directive (EC, 2000) and the European Environment Agency online multilingual environmental glossary (EEA, 2012). These are in line with the significant work of the UN Statistics Division on System of Environmental-Economic Accounting for Water (SEEA-Water) (UN Statistics Division, 2012).
