Socioeconomic and ecological monitoring toolkit : Huraa Mangrove Nature Reserve
IUCN Publication
Abstract: 

In this toolkit, we focus on both human (socioeconomic) and biophysical (ecological) aspects of monitoring. Socioeconomic monitoring normally focuses on people’s knowledge and attitude towards an ecosystem as well as their natural resource use and dependence. Ecological monitoring on the other hand will generally focus on a specific species or ecosystem, using supporting information on environmental conditions and associated organisms. Together, they provide us with a picture of the human and environmental changes which take place over time in a particular place, how they are interlinked and how we might improve management in order to address socioeconomic and ecological changes and threats. This toolkit brings together a simple range of methodologies to carry out regular, joint socioeconomic and ecological monitoring in Huraa Mangrove Nature Reserve (HMNR). It outlines the techniques that can be used to collect data and provides a framework for monitoring and analysis that can be used by individuals with no prior training in the field of socioeconomic and ecological monitoring.
