    Trabajos anteriores han demostrado que gran parte de la variabilidad observada en la huella ecológica per cápita de los países puede explicarse a partir de las diferencias en renta per cápita y temperatura. La pregunta que nos planteamos en esta investigación es si el modelo urbano (densidad urbana y tamaño urbano) también puede ayudar a explicar dicha variabilidad. Los resultados obtenidos confirman el significativo impacto de la densidad urbana sobre la huella, por lo que controlar la dispersión urbana parece ser un mecanismo eficiente para reducir la huella ecológica de los países. En lugar de reflexionar sobre si las ciudades son o no son insostenibles por naturaleza, esta investigación se ha orientado de forma más operativa, intentando discernir qué tipo de modelo urbano contribuye en mayor medida a la sostenibilidad del planeta.
