About Global Footprint Network
Our mission is to promote a sustainable economy by advancing the Ecological Footprint, a measurement tool that makes the reality of planetary limits relevant to decision-makers.

Focus on Africa
Global Footprint Network and the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation have published a new factbook: "Africa's Ecological Footprint: Human Well-Being and Biological Capital." The creation of the factbook is the first step in a project exploring whether Ecological Footprint analysis applied in the African development context can lead to more successful human development strategies.


The project team welcomes your input. If after reviewing the factbook, you would like to submit your comments and feedback you can use our online questionnaire or download the questionnaire. Your input will help shape the four workshops being held throughout Africa in the last months of 2006. Click here for more details or to download the report.
