Balancing the water needs of humans and nature requires knowledge of the actual water requirements necessary to sustain goods and services in society and in ecosystems. The biggest threat to secure availability of water for ecosystems is the pressure exercised by humans on finite fresh water. We need to understand the compelling forces that alter that availability. These powerful forces are linked to human water demand and to water-dependent land use in agriculture.
