Russia’s Biocapacity and Ecological Footprint: Nowcasting and Forecasting from the National Footprint Accounts / edited Pavel A. Boev — WWF-Russia. — Moscow, 2018.
The present publication is based on the nowcasting principles, when the country-level UN data from the previous year (the most current 2018 National Footprint Accounts are based on the 2015 data) are supplemented by the most up-to-date statistics published by national statistics offices. This method helped to significantly decrease the time lag between the year of publication and the reporting period, which is essential if we are to use Ecological Footprint to measure an organization’s or nations’ progress in the reduction of human impact on nature. This publication is aimed at a wide range of audiences, including sustainability professionals, policymakers, environmental NGOs and sustainability students.
