Incorporating social-ecological complexities into Conservation Policy
by SORALO / Wednesday, 24 March 2021 / Published in

Evidence rarely considers the complexities of social-ecological systems. The SocialEcological Systems Framework (SESF) is an adaptable yet structured approach for understanding the processes that lead to changes in natural resources, using a systems-based approach that aims to treat ecological and social components equally. Few conservation planning and policy initiatives have implemented the SESF to assess the interlinked social and ecological consequences of conservation policies.
