AbstractAlthough a very useful tool, Ecological Footprint (EF) analysis has recently been subject to quite a bit of criticism. One of the most important weaknesses that EF suffers from is the fact that it is not a dynamic EF-model. An attempt has, therefore, been made in this article to develop a suitable dynamic EF-model. The dynamic EF-model, thus developed, can be used also for future predictions. A condition for future sustainability has also been derived and tested. Although the model development and analyses have been carried out for the rice-component only, they can likewise be extended for various other components.
