The Trouble with Sustainability: Perspective of Ecology
This paper deals with the ecological footprints as an indicator. The methodology for the ecology footprint is extended based on many factors with respect to sustainability. The paper will contribute to a broadening of the understanding of the spatial and temporal aspects of urban landuse policies, processes, and practices and their relationship to sustainable development. Theoretically guided, quantitatively oriented, and empirically established research is needed to develop models to understand sustainability as related to the environment and natural resources' reservation. The intuitive appeal of the Footprint is another asset, leading to its adoption for many projects. For applications of the Footprint to sustainable scale issues, it would be wise to keep in mind that this measure likely provides an underestimate of ecological impact. Future studies should consider the problem-oriented and application-oriented focus with respect to sustainability. Those studies should complement deep and state-of-the-art conceptual and empirical analysis, and discuss the practical consequences of their findings, as well as ways to translate them into policy measures.
