Abstract

The concept of water footprint is total volume of water required by an individual or community to produce goods or services. One of the watersheds that play an important role in Aceh Province is the Krueng Aceh watershed. This watershed flows into two administrative areas, namely Aceh Besar District and Banda Aceh City with an area of 174,785.79 Ha. The main purpose of this research is to design software for water footprint simulation of food consumption in the Krueng Aceh watershed using Visual Basic.Net. while the data were taken from the previous studies. The procedures and methods used in this research study are as follows: analysis software requirements, software design, program code generation, and testing with validation. The result of this research is the software for analyzing the water footprintof food consumption in the Krueng Aceh watershed using Visual Basic.Net produces a windows-based program called WFcal. The WFcal is able to calculate the waterfootprint of food consumption in the Krueng Aceh watershed accordance with existing validation data. Based on the test results, the output value of the WF calculation from the WFcal software is same as the output value generated by the reference data. The functions that exist in WFcal can also run properly according to user commands.
