The Island Limits project delivers the first Material Flow Analysis (MFA) and Ecological Footprint (EF) of Ireland. It underlines the vital contribution that the modelling and measurement of material flows and the Ecological Footprint (EF) make to developing a robust evidence base to support policy- and decision-making for sustainable development. The authors hope that the completion of the first Material Flow Analysis and EF of Ireland will make a vital contribution to the development of targeted, evidence-based policies, the communication of our current consumption impacts and the prioritisation of actions and options for reducing these impacts.
