Ecological FootprintEntry ID: geodata_1897
Abstract: The Ecological Footprint (EF) is a measure of the consumption of renewable natural resources by a human population, be it that of a country, a region or the whole world.
A population's EF is the total area of productive land or sea required to produce all the crops, meat, seafood, wood and fibre it consumes, to sustain its energy consumption and to give space for its infrastructure.
The EF can be compared with the biologically productive capacity of the land and sea available to that population.
