5. A cross-national analysis of the factors impacting the coastal ecological footprint

Zareena Begum Irfan; Amra Shirin Faisal

Volume 1, Issue 3 , Winter 2021, Pages 51-64

http://dx.doi.org/10.22034/wpj.2021.263286.1022

Abstract
  Coastal ecological footprint (EF) forms one of the six components of the EF measure. It accounts for the marine area required to sustain current levels of seafood consumption within a nation. It is estimated by drawing on the calculation of net primary production or the amount of solar energy converted ...  Read More
