Country Comparisons

Select a country to view its performance relative to the Doughnut of social and planetary boundaries and see how it compares with other countries. Dark green circles show the social foundation and ecological ceiling. Blue wedges show social performance relative to a threshold associated with meeting basic needs. Green wedges show resource use relative to a biophysical boundary associated with sustainability. Red wedges show shortfalls below the social threshold or overshoot beyond the biophysical boundary, while grey wedges show indicators with missing data. Wedges with a dashed edge extend beyond the chart area. Ideally a country would have blue wedges that reach the social foundation and green wedges within the ecological ceiling. See the tables below for country-specific details.

The data on this page are from our 2018 article A Good Life For All Within Planetary Boundaries. Most indicators are for the year 2011.
