Include an analysis of socio-economic and market context.

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.

Mar­ket and Eco­nom­ic Analy­sis Fram­ing Ques­tions Template

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.
