Water consumption in buildings has been a matter of concern all over the world as the number of cases has been steadily on the increase. Such consumption and water end-uses vary according to the type of building, culture, climatic conditions, and so on. In order to properly apply water efficient measures in buildings, water consumption and water end-uses need to be better analyzed. Thus, a Special Issue on "Water consumption and water end-uses in buildings" aims to publish such papers from all manner of buildings, including houses, multifamily residential buildings, commercial buildings, schools, airports, etc. This would provide a valuable overview of scenarios in different parts of the world.
