The National Footprint and Biocapacity Accounts, one of the world’s most extensively used natural resource frameworks, calculate the Ecological Footprint and biocapacity of countries. The Ecological Footprint represents a country’s demand for natural resources and services, while biocapacity represents the ability of a country’s ecosystems to provide them. Our data packages provide an ecological balance sheet for more than 200 countries and territories, with time trends. Data from our Bilateral Trade Analysis also presents resource flows, including final output for 57 sectors for 129 countries and regions, as well as the size and origin of trade flows.
