This report examines the concept of carrying capacity in the context of regional environmental management. The notion of carrying capacity developed out of descriptions of the growth and dynamics of natural populations. Applied to human activities, the concept is broadened to include the complex relations among resources, infrastructure and productive activities, residuals, and societal preferences for quality of life. Four dimensions of a human oriented carrying capacity--resource/production, environment/residuals, infrastructure/congestion, and production/societal relations--are described.
