For at least the last 30 years, no country has met the basic needs of its residents at a globally sustainable level of resource use. How does your country compare with others on achieving the goal of a safe and just future for all? How many social goals does it achieve? How many planetary boundaries does it transgress?
Countries have been transgressing planetary boundaries faster than they have been meeting the basic needs of their residents. Explore the progress of nearly 150 countries over time using interactive charts and doughnut plots from our recent 2021 study, The Social Shortfall and Ecological Overshoot of Nations, published in Nature Sustainability.
No country currently meets the basic needs of its residents at a globally sustainable level of resource use. Explore and compare national snapshots of the resource use associated with meeting people’s basic needs in over 150 countries, using data from our 2018 study, A Good Life For All Within Planetary Boundaries, published in Nature Sustainability (and summarised in The Conversation).
