Resources / Uses / Governance
The Resources or Ecosystem Services/Uses/Governance (RUG) view of the system is an operational approach, based on system thinking, social-ecological systems, stemming from different operational management approaches (including DPSIR, ARDI), aiming at:
Integrated modelling: representing ecological, economic and social processes in an integrated way, considering objects which are already social-ecological sub-systems
Integrated assessment: each category of objects within the system deserve its own assessment criteria or framework (state variable for R(ES), objective functions for uses and governance)
