A regional look at HANPP: Human consumption is increasing, NPP is not

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review

Abstract

Abdi et al (2014 Environ. Res. Lett. 9 094003), have adapted the concept of comparing supply and demand of annual plant production known as human appropriation of net primary production (HANPP) to a region of the Sahel with rapid population growth. They found that HANPP more than doubled over the study period of 2000-2010, from 19% to 41%, suggesting increasing vulnerability of these populations to food insecurity.
