Integral Assessment of Condition and Sustainability of Socio-Ecological-Economic Systems

Chapter
Part of the Innovations in Landscape Research book series (ILR)

Abstract

The methodological fundamentals and methods of integral assessment of the condition and sustainability of socio-ecological-economic systems are examined. The aim of the research was to summarize the results of the development and testing of classification models of the integrated assessment of the condition and sustainability of socio-ecological-economic systems. The research focuses on socio-ecological-economic systems which include three subsystems: 1—environmental (quality of the environment), 2—economic, 3—social. In some models, a separate component is distinguished in the third subsystem: 4—morbidity rate in the population. The research topics are the following: I—theoretical and methodological aspects and methods of generation of integral condition indicators (integral indicators of the first level of development for ecological, economic, and social subsystems, as well as the integral indicators of the second level of development or summary indicators); II—sustainability of socio-ecological-economic systems or their ability to maintain the characteristics, parameters of modes and class of the condition in which the system (or its individual subsystems) had been before the start of the impact. The study examines basic definitions, fundamentals of theory and methodology of assessment of condition and sustainability of socio-ecological-economic systems, algorithms for the realization of the integral estimates, and results of the assessment research. Examples include (1)—the integral assessment of socio-ecological-economic system of Russia and comparative integral assessment of socio-ecological-economic systems of Russia and Canada, as well as Russia and Mexico; (2)—the condition of socio-ecological-economic systems of the Federal Districts of the Russian Federation; (3)—the condition of socio-ecological-economic systems of the individual regions of the Russian Federation and their subregions (the Northwest, the Center, the northern regions, etc.); (4)—the condition of socio-ecological-economic systems of the cities of the Russian Federation; (5)—the record of morbidity among the population in the integral assessment of socio-ecological-economic systems of the regions, and (6)—the study of the sustainability of regional systems in relation to the impacts on them and their subsystems. This research focuses on the development of multi-criteria and multilevel classifications (classification models) to study the condition and sustainability of socio-ecological-economic systems and the construction of integral indicators based on analysis and synthesis of Indicators in information deficit (ASPID) and Aggregated Preference Indices System (APIS) methods and models.
