Criterion IV: Social and economic indicators of rangeland sustainabilityCriteria and Indicators for Sustainable Rangeland Management (2010)
Social and economic systems provide the context and rationale for rangeland management. Sustaining rangeland ecosystems requires attention to the social and economic conditions that accompany the functioning of those systems. We present and discuss economic and social indicators for rangeland sustainability. A brief conceptual basis for each indicator is offered, describing its potential relationship to rangelands.
