Ecological Footprint and Sustainability of Baghdad City
The city of Baghdad suffers from horizontal expansion resulting from the large increase in population, and the consequent increase in the demand for energy and food and increase the introduction of carbon dioxide. Therefore, Baghdad has become overcrowded and suffers from bottlenecks, especially in the city center, resulting in design problems, poor infrastructure and lack of accounts for energy consumption or the amount of renewable energy produced. Due to the lack of research and studies that dealt with this subject, the research problem of (the scientific need to reach the elements of the ecological footprint that leads to the sustainability of Baghdad city) resulted in the research hypothesis that the ecological footprint has an impact on the sustainability of the city of Baghdad. The research has identified the following objectives: To study, understand and provide scientific knowledge about the ecological footprint with its various components. As well as access to the ecological footprint and biological capacity and its impact on the sustainability of the city of Baghdad. This will be addressed through a study of the ecological footprint, its components and components, and the study of some global examples of the applications of ecological footprint in the sustainability of the city, ending with fingerprinting and the biological capacity of Baghdad city and the practical application of ecological footprint indicators in Baghdad city sustainability.
