Scotland’s Global Footprint

This 2005 project used the Ecological Footprint analysis in two local authority areas to help policy-makers and the public understand the global environmental impact of current lifestyles and to see how that impact can be reduced.

The projects aims were to:
- Develop software which will enable all Scottish local authorities to use the Footprint technique as an indicator and management tool

- Use the Footprint to demonstrate performance on Best Value and Community Planning.

- Build capacity within the two local authorities, the Steering Group, and Liaison Group to the project on the Ecological Footprint analysis and application.
