IFs calculates the water use per capita (WATUSEPC) and the total water use (WATUSE) for each model region. The biggest water use for most countries is agricultural (on a global basis 65% of freshwater use, according to Postel, 1996: 13). IFs uses a table function that relates change in per capita use to change in agricultural production per capita.
