Per capita water consumption:
Virtual water refers to the water included in the production of everything we eat, buy and wear.
Following norms are adopted by government of India rural and urban water supply schemes in 2019:
The per capita demand or per capita consumption is usually calculated for a specific city, area, or village for planning the water requirement of that area and to plan a specific water distribution system accordingly. so coming back to your we generally calculate per capita demand for a specific city for example cities like Mumbai, Kolkata, Banglore, Nagpur, etc
so generally we cannot calculate the water demand for a whole country or nation. instead of that, we calculate the water demand for specific areas.
I’m listing down some percapita demand of some cities in India .Hope it will helpyou in understanding things.
(note : per capita demand =current population*water demand/365*100)
