Represent impacts on people (i.e., human well-being interests) in terms of specific human well-being components.

It is impos­si­ble to draw defen­si­ble links between the envi­ron­ment and broad con­cepts of human well-being such as ‘improved liveli­hoods’ or ‘healthy com­mu­ni­ties.’ Refer instead to the Con­ser­van­cy’s sug­gest­ed human well-being focal areas and their spe­cif­ic com­po­nents to iden­ti­fy more spe­cif­ic human well-being inter­ests. As much as pos­si­ble, describe the pri­ma­ry inter­ests of peo­ple in terms of spe­cif­ic com­po­nents, and spec­i­fy dri­vers and out­comes in as much detail as pos­si­ble. For exam­ple, in Fig­ure 5 spe­cif­ic human well-being com­po­nents, e.g., income, insuf­fi­cient gov­ern­ing rules [poor reg­u­la­tion], etc., are iden­ti­fied for an illus­tra­tive sit­u­a­tion analy­sis for wind ener­gy development.
