Project Title & Description
State of New England-Competitive-Constrained
This project will apply a science-based metric, the Ecological Footprint, to measure and benchmark the Ecological Footprint and biocapacity of the six states within the New England region of the United States.
A Footprint and biocapacity report will be prepared with the goal of providing a resource for State and regional decision-makers to use in exploring emerging competitiveness factors in a resource constrained world. The report is meant to also spark a constructive policy dialogue among policy advisors in economic, environment and planning policy circles. This report offers opportunities for the general public to learn about their state�s resource performance and how it compares to the national levels and other states in the region.
