dc.description.abstract Sustainability has become a household word in development. Economic benefits however, overshadow the restraints sustainability places over development (Van Riet, 1989). To take action on unsustainable development, a country should have some sort of measurement tool to determine the condition or progress of unsustainable development. To determine the impact South Africans have on the ecology has been studied intensively but the actual measurements of these impacts have been neglected. This study proposes a practical tool to measure the effect of human impact on the environment. en_US
