a better metric for
ECOsystem-based community-centered sustainable organization management
We apply an area management approach that considers communities living within their ecosystems as the unit to measure and manage.
WHAT SUCCESS LOOKS LIKE
plan. build. balance.
We work with communities to build and maintain the balance between the local economy, ecological resources and social welfare.
Increase in household incomes and decrease in ecological footprint is our measure of success. The improvement of human development indicators should not be at the expense of biocapacity.
HOW WE DO THIS
coordinate. monitor. improve.
We work with rural and urban poor households to organize and manage their collective assets - skills, natural resources, and innovative capacity to co-create their local economies.
community ecological and social accounting matrix (CEESAM)
Rather than consolidating the balance sheets and income statements of big corporations, we consolidate the HOUSEHOLD balance sheets and income statements which measures COMMUNITY WEALTH & WELFARE.
