Ecological footprint

welcome back guys in this video tutorial we'll be talking about the ecological footprint so what is ecological footprint now ecological footprint represents the amount of productive land needed to support a nation's resource needs right so that means it is the amount that the the amount of land that is required I mean not any land it is a productive land so definitely the amount of regions from where we can get some productive resources coming out which will help to grow the generations and grow the population out there so if you look at here the ecological footprint already I mean there are two important things one is the available ecological capacity in a particular area and second thing is their ecological footprint that means the need of the productive land so there are two things whatever productive land we have in our hands and the need so these are the two things if we if we if we write it here that say here the productive land we have and the productive land we need this is we have right so what we have and what we need now in most of the cases what is happening day by day as the human population is rising the productive land required or productive land needed exceeds the productive land that we have so we cannot take productive land out from any other pace because it is already whatever we have is in this planet so we need to take care of that productive land only and we need to increase the production so that we can have the benefit from that same region everyone get the benefit from the same region so if you look at here in this case in this diagram it is very clear if you look at here in this x-axis in the y-axis in the x-axis there is a available ecological capacity in the y-axis we have the ecological footprint right so we're looking at here for per individual person if you look at here so in this case in the if you look at here there are different countries that are placed in this graph plotted in this graph okay so what does that mean let's see it once say here if we let us say for us the ecological footprint they are required something like between 8 points something so if you take here let us say assume 8 so the ecological footprint requires 8 and also the available ecological capacity is 6 here so the ecological capacity that was present is 6 but a required is 8 that is ecological footprint 8 that means it already exceeds the amount of production that the nature support right so it's already exist for USA for Norway Germany Japan you can for every every part you see for Japan the ecological footprint is 6 it is close to 6 that means the productive land that is required for supporting and sustaining the growth and development of the people and population of Japan is 6 but actually the environmental resource Japan have is here say 2 only so see huge deficit is already there but there are also countries where the deficit is not taking at role at least for example New Zealand Australia you see New Zealand the amount of an ecological footprint that means the amount of productive land required is 10 so needed is 10 but we already have 14 as the available ecological capacity for New Zealand so new zealand already have that resource to support whatever individuals and populations present there in the new zealand so as australia canada sweden on all these regions they already have enough ecological research and capacity to support the growth of their population but the other countries like USA Germany Japan Norway and UK they don't have that ecological capacity to support their population growth and the number of individuals that are present there so they already exceed that ecological footprint graph and there are some countries which belong to the middle of this of this curve because you see once we draw the curve that means this graph this straight line denotes a barrier border anything above that those are the countries which are highly developed countries they already have the deficit of the ecological footprint but whatever countries are below that graph or below that line below that border those countries already have whatever it takes to support their individuals so it is good for them but there are some countries which belong to this graph on to this line itself example India and China so in this country is India and China they are developing countries but you see in India and China the amount of ecological footprint I mean the productive land required is kind of balanced with the with the ecological capacity that are available now if they develop further then they will have they will obtains that if deficit because they will require more and more productive land but they won't get it so as a result it will increase so that is the idea about the ecological footprint and this graph about depo logical footprint is telling as a very vital insight about the different regions and whether they are developed or developing what are what are the socio-economic conditions as well as the individuals that are present and the population and how those country will support their population in future so that is why it is important so that's all about ecological footprint if
