Water has become central to international debate. Its availability is becoming an area of concern for an increasing number of stakeholders around the world so tools and models are needed to contribute to the sustainability of its use. In recent times, Water Footprint in Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) emerged as a key method to evaluate the potential impacts related to water in a life cycle perspective and to support informed decisions related to its use. This special issue is intended to collect and explore contributions on methodological developments related to Water Footprint in LCA, as well as presenting a variety of applications and case studies to support future developments of the method. Papers selected for this Special Issue are subjected to a rigorous peer review procedure with the aim of rapid and wide dissemination of research results, developments, and applications in the area of water and more generally environment.Dr. Alessandro Manzardo
