Just in: “Evaluating indicators of human well-being for ecosystem-based management”

We are excited to announce the fourth paper produced by the SWIMM team, “Evaluating indicators of human well-being for ecosystem-based management,” published today in Ecosystem Health & Sustainability. In this paper we develop a new tool to help decision-makers carefully consider how people are affected by changes in the natural environment and by different management strategies. We introduce a detailed way to think about “human well-being” and a systematic process for measuring human well-being as it relates to the environment. Supplemental information includes a list of 2,000+ existing indicators and our full evaluation results. Read the paper here.
