The economic valuation of water has recently been discussed in the Brazilian political scenario. Part of the proposed discussion is the incorporation of water in trade and commerce, especially in commodities, using the ‘virtual water' concept. In this article we search for the impact that the utilization of the ‘virtual water' concept may have on the Brazilian scenario and discuss, at the same time, the consequences of this exportation.

Keywords : Virtual water; Water resources; Commodities.
