Join a training course

We provide a range of courses to train Water Footprint Assessment professionals so that they can help achieve sustainable, efficient and equitable water use.

  • Online e-learning introduction to Water Footprint Assessment, which is offered periodically throughout the year.
  • One, two and three-day training courses that are organised with our partners and organisations that have a specific interest in promoting the use of Water Footprint Assessment.
  • The yearly Global Water Footprint Standard Training course, held in the Netherlands.

Participants in our courses are taught by the world’s leading experts in Water Footprint Assessment and will gain experience in using it in a range of applications, from calculating the water footprint of agriculture, industry or domestic water use to identifying the policies, investments and practices that will result in sustainable, efficient and equitable water use. They leave with a solid understanding of how Water Footprint Assessment can be used by companies and governments to achieve water stewardship and integrated water resource management, resource efficiency and green growth.

We also develop tailor-made courses that address specific sectors, geographic locations or water issues.

Prof. Hoekstra and Daniel Chico hold an intensive course on Water Footprint Assessment Methodology & Application, Mexico.

In addition to our training courses, we work within organisations to build their capacity in developing corporate water strategies, regulations or local, regional and national policies based on Water Footprint Assessment and the wealth of information it provides on the current status of water use and management, as well as the improvements that will take us to a sustainable future.

Whether you are a professional of a specific industrial or agriculture business sector, a consultant, a researcher or student, or working for a governmental organisation interested in integrated, sustainable and efficient water management, we invite you to participate in our training activities.
