An analysis of the historical socio-economic context will inform your understanding of the market forces and economic drivers affecting the conservation and human well-being interests that you identify through your situation analysis. It will also help to identify potential changes in socio-economic, political, and management practices that could affect these interests.
Using the following framing questions, create a list of direct and indirect drivers that connect to each primary interest.
After going through the market driven framing questions, the team may be able to identify market forces and economic drivers in the situation analysis. Note that the indirect drivers (or contributing factors) should include not only threats, but also opportunities when applicable.
The main economic drivers identified can now be added to the situation analysis.
