Footprint and population are growing faster than the Earth’s biocapacity

Ecological Footprint accounting quantifies both the annual availability of biocapacity and human demand on that capacity (Wackernagel et al. 2002; Borucke et al. 2013). Since 1961, the total Footprint has increased by 150 per cent (being now 2.5 times larger). In the meantime, with changing management practice and increased agricultural inputs, biocapacity expanded globally by 20 per cent (Global Footprint Network 2013, Borucke et al. 2013).
