That’s because the delay in available data was shortened from three to two years due to improved United Nations’ data processes.The Accounts were produced under the close observation of students in the Faculty of Environmental Studies as part of our Ecological Footprint Initiative with York University in Toronto. SEE THE DETAILS  Watch the recording of our Launch Event Livestream on YouTube where we discussed solutions to balance the National Footprint and Biocapacity Accounts with industry, local government, and civil society leaders.
