Biocapacity is the ability of ecosystems to produce useful biological materials and to absorb wastes generated by humans, using current management and extraction technologies.

Biocapacity is an aggregated measure of the amount of land available, weighted by the productivity of that land. It represents the ability of the biosphere to produce crops, livestock (pasture), timber products (forest) and fish, as well as to sequester waste such as CO2. It also includes how much of this regenerative capacity is occupied by infrastructure (built-up land).
