WHAT DOES RESTORATIVE DEVELOPMENT LOOK LIKE?

The Footprint Network’s map of global ecological debtors and creditors is one of the key images for this blog. I’ve posted it before, but the Network just updated the map and I’ve been looking at it again. Countries in red are those that use more of the earth’s resources and services than can be provided within their own borders – ecological debtors. The green countries are those that run an ‘ecological surplus’, where their national biocapacity is greater than their footprint.
This is a really important map, because it reverses the usual understanding of debt and poverty. The countries in red are ecologically ‘in the red’, and rely on the countries in green to provide timber, fish, land, and carbon sequestration.
