Allocation Approach #1 —

Reduction of Footprint Relative to Historical Size

This approach starts at historical levels of consumption, similar to the mechanism the Kyoto Protocol developed for the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions. One main objection to this approach would be that such an allocation strategy privileges regions with historically high consumption levels and large populations. It also disadvantages those that have already begun to reduce their consumption and population.

Allocation Approach #2 —
