A discussion of natural resource management based on the value of ecosystem service

Ecosystems are closely related to the welfare of human beings, and all benefits, whether direct or indirect, tangible or intangible, are referred to as 'ecosystem services'. Without quantification of ecosystem services and the values they provide, it is common for people to overlook or undervalue these values when benefiting from them, resulting in the loss of biodiversity with realizing it. Therefore, the management of natural resources is of great importance. IUCN suggests that natural resource management can be divided into two dimensions: 'sustaining nature' and 'achieving social justice and human rights'. Sustaining nature can be achieved by improving the resilience of natural resource management, thereby responding to uncertain and changing conditions in a way that enhances environmental and social resilience. Achieving social justice and human rights emphasizes that natural resources should be managed with justice and leads to equitable social outcomes.
