Ecological Footprint Research Data on WWF&GNF Report

FEAST HQ WG1_Publications

A report “Kankyou to Mukiau Machizukuri – Nihon no Ecological Footprint 2019 – (Community development striving for better environment – Ecological Footprint in Japan 2019 – (English title is not official)” co-authored by WWF Japan and Global Foot Print Network was published on  July 26th, 2019. Global environmental issues stem largely from our daily consumer activity. Nonetheless, we fail to relate to and understand it as we often lack a tool to do so. This report articulately shows “ecological footprint” as “a tool to visualize and quantify the impacts that local communities place on the environment” (p.3 -translated from Japanese). FEAST provided the analytical data of the ecological footprint for all 47 prefectures in Japan for the report. You can access to the article by WWF Japan on the report publication and the report itself (both in Japanese) from the links below.
