This project reviewed common frameworks that conceptualise the relationship between people and nature to identify which parts of the system influence environmental outcomes, and factors relevant to designing policy or influencing behaviours. A review of available data determined that insufficient data are available to adequately describe the integrated socio-ecological systems that support us. Because data collection is prohibitively expensive, it is important to think strategically about how to use existing information and prioritise the collection of new data.
