A Note on Excel Tables, Comments are included as explanatory notes within tables where appropriate and are. indicated by a small red triangle in the upper right corner of a cell. Throughout the NFA 2016 workbook tables are often assigned a named range The named. ranges are usually given the same name as the worksheet on which they appear. Throughout the NFA 2016 workbook conditional formatting has been used to hide Excel. formatting error codes and zero values when they are present in table records This. formatting is intended for ease of reading To view actual error or zero values in a cell. highlight the cells that appear blank and the error or zero values will be visible as white. text Many columns contain nested functions that convert error values to zeroes. iv Guidebook to the National Footprint Accounts 2016 Edition. 1 Introduction,1 1 About the NFA 2016, This Guidebook accompanies the National Footprint Accounts 2016 Edition hereafter NFA 2016 The. NFA 2016 covers 242 countries and territories and the world for all years between 1961 and 2012. 1 1 1 Licensing, Global Footprint Network provides licensed copies of the NFA 2016 in Microsoft Excel format Free.

Accounts methodology papers Borucke et al 2013 Ewing et al 2010b Ewing et al 2008 Kitzes et al. 2007 Galli et al 2007 Kitzes et al 2006 Wackernagel et al 2005 Monfreda et al 2004 Wackernagel. et al 2002, 5 Guidebook to the National Footprint Accounts 2016 Edition.
2 Structure of the NFA 2016,2 1 Overview, The NFA 2016 shows all steps of a national Ecological Footprint and biocapacity calculation from. raw data to aggregate Footprint and biocapacity Figure 1 1 shows an overview of the components. and calculations that comprise the National Footprint Accounts. Figure 1 1 The framework of the National Footprint Accounts. 2 2 Worksheets in NFA 2016, Worksheets are organized in groups which generally follow the various land use types within the. Ecological Footprint The five land use types are cropland grazing land fishing grounds forest land. 6 Guidebook to the National Footprint Accounts 2016 Edition. which serves two Footprint categories carbon Footprint and forest products Footprint and built up. 2 2 1 Summary Worksheet, Figure 2 2 1 The summary worksheet combines the calculated Ecological Footprint and biocapacity for. all land use types for the given country and year,Explanation and Notes. The summary worksheet contains three tables and two charts The first two tables contain rows. corresponding to each land use type with columns giving the Ecological Footprints of production. imports exports and consumption and biocapacity The last row of each table sums each column and. calculates Footprint and biocapacity totals The first of these tables lists total Footprint and biocapacity. for each land use type while the second reports a country s Footprint and biocapacity per person. The third table provides a broad overview of the results of the national Ecological Footprint calculation. in both total area and area per person The first two rows report biocapacity and Footprint of. production for the specific country and the world The next row shows the net imports of the Footprint. net trade for World is always zero and the fourth row summarizes the Footprint of consumption. The row labelled BC EFP shows the biocapacity minus the Ecological Footprint of production which. represents the unused domestic biocapacity The final row BC EFC applies to the individual country. and represents the net biocapacity that the country has available after accounting for the amount. taken by consumption Negative values for either two rows indicate a deficit. Figure 2 2 2 Comparison summary between nation and World values. To the right of this table is the number of planets required if everyone lived like the people of the. selected country, At the bottom of the sheet the left chart illustrates the relative sizes of the Footprint of Production.
Footprint of Consumption Footprint of Imports Footprint of Exports and biocapacity The pie chart. to the right shows the relative contributions of each land type to the Footprint of Consumption. 7 Guidebook to the National Footprint Accounts 2016 Edition. The topmost table draws Footprints of domestic production imports exports and final consumption. from each land use type Biocapacity for each land use type is drawn from the biocap worksheet The. last row of the table aggregates these into total national Footprint and biocapacity Note that the. embodied built up land in traded goods is not calculated so the imports and exports columns for this. land use type will always be blank Please see Chapter 8 for further information. The second table in the summary worksheet draws values from the first table into an identical. arrangement of rows and columns It then divides the values from the first table by national population. FAO PopSTAT database to determine Footprint and biocapacity per person for each land use type. The last row of this table sums the calculated Footprint and biocapacity of each land use type to give. country totals, The calculations in the top four rows of the third summary table draw all country specific values from. the bottommost rows of the first two tables The global total values listed in this table are drawn from. the world results table The final two rows are drawn from the top section of the table. 2 2 2 Ecological Footprint of by Land Use Type Worksheets. These worksheets summarize the Footprints of Production EFP Imports EFI Exports EFE and. Consumption EFC There are seven worksheets in total one worksheet for each of the six land use. types and a single worksheet for biocapacity which calculates biocapacity for every land use type. except carbon currently assigned a biocapacity of zero see Chapter 7. ef carbon summarizes the carbon Footprint of fossil fuel combustion and electricity trade. ef crop summarizes the Footprint of cropland embodied in crop products and in feed products for. livestock and fish fodder and fish food, ef grazing summarizes the Footprint of pasture grass embodied in livestock products. ef fish summarizes the Footprint of marine and inland water areas embodied in fish and other. aquatic products, ef forest summarizes the forest products Footprint embodied in primary and secondary forest. ef built summarizes the Footprint associated with infrastructure. biocap reports a country s bioproductive area and biocapacity in each of the six land use types. Each worksheet reports the Footprint of production imports exports and consumption for the. different components that make up each land use type The final row in each table sums the Footprints. of all components to calculate a total Footprint for that land use type These totals are used in the. summary worksheet, These worksheets apply an identical formula to calculate the Ecological Footprint of consumption from. the Footprints of production imports and exports, 8 Guidebook to the National Footprint Accounts 2016 Edition.
The Footprint of consumption is calculated according to Equation 2 1. Equation 2 1, Calculation of Ecological Footprint of Consumption. EFC Footprint of consumption associated with a product or waste. EFP Footprint of production associated with product or waste. EFI Footprint of imports associated with product or waste. EFE Footprint of exports associated with product or waste. The Footprint of consumption of individual products or wastes are summed to obtain an aggregate. Footprint of consumption for a given land use category Adding together the Footprints of all of the. major land use categories gives the Footprint of a country or of the world. The single biocap worksheet summarizes the biocapacity calculation for each land use type using. data on area A yield factor YF intertemporal yield factor IYF and equivalence factor EQF Below. the table and the data flow graphics is a pie chart illustrating the relative composition of domestic. biocapacity The calculation of biocapacity follows Equation 2 2. Equation 2 2, Calculation of biocapacity for Single Land Use Type. BC biocapacity of a given land use type gha, A Area of a given land use type within a country nha. YF Yield factor of a given land use type within a country wha nha 1. IYF Intertemporal Yield factor of a given land use type for that year no units. EQF Equivalence factor for given land use type gha wha 1. The calculated biocapacity of the major land use types are summed to obtain an aggregate biocapacity. for a country or for the world,2 2 3 Other Worksheets. The remaining worksheets convert tonnes of a product into the number of global hectares necessary. to provide that product These worksheets include calculations raw data in grey cells and constants. in blue cells The top of each worksheet contains information such as links to the summary. worksheet and links to worksheets that reference or refer to this worksheet. 9 Guidebook to the National Footprint Accounts 2016 Edition. In calculating Footprints of production imports and exports the basic Ecological Footprint formula is. Equation 2 3, Ecological Footprint of Yearly Product Extraction or Waste Generation.
EFP Ecological Footprint associated with a product or waste gha. P Amount of product extracted or waste generated t yr 1. YN National average yield for product extraction or waste absorption t nha 1 yr 1. YF Yield factor of a given land use type within a country wha nha 1. EQF Equivalence factor for given land use type gha wha 1. IYF Intertemporal Yield factor of a given land use type no units. Note that in Equation 2 3 because the yield factor is defined as national divided by world yield the. national average yields cancel out see Chapter 10 Thus the basic Ecological Footprint formula can. be expressed more succinctly in the following form. Equation 2 3b,Ecological Footprint of Yearly Product Extrac.
