In 2006, the Living Planet Report ranked the UAE as having the highest per capita Ecological Footprint in the world. In response, the Al Basma Al Beeiyah Initiative was launched in October 2007 by a partnership comprising the Ministry of Environment and Water (MOEW), the Environment Agency-Abu Dhabi’s AGEDI (Abu Dhabi Global Environmental Data Initiative) programme, the Emirates Wildlife Society in association with WWF (EWS-WWF), and the Global Footprint Network (GFN). The aim of the Initiative was to work together to better understand the Ecological Footprint of the UAE, and monitor consumption patterns in the country.

  1. My family uses the liquid they put in ports potty toilets in our commode. It keeps the smell down. We don't waste precious water doing it this way. Ladies, tampons will biodegrade, so our girls bury them. Any tips to share? anybody.

  2. It is a matter of overpopulation. And all cities are mayor polluters and unsustainable. A city in a dessert is simply, worst idea ever.

    Sustainable population in earth is 500million.

    There are many ways of greed, irrational reproduction being one.

    Rationalize reproduction. Turn it into a logic procedure. Not done for no reason, or for mysticism, but under rational laws, and logic.

  3. People in UAE probably already have few children, and what you are talking about applies to areas with over population and these problems are already trying to be solved but once solved we dont want the people in the certain area to start acting like the US.

  4. Just one question:

    why not connect POPULATION GROWTH to footprint?

    Sorry, it´s stupid to ask people to reduce individual footprint while not asking this same people to have less children, it´s mathematically pointless and futile.

    If small individual footprint helped the environment, places like haiti, nigeria and pakistan would be real environmental paradises.

  5. This video was an advertisement link that appeared when I was reading my email messages, a very well put together video indeed. It's a shame not many people have seen it thought, 4,000+ out of billions is oh-so minimal…
