Framework for assessing and improving the system of agro-eco-management


  • Hrabrin Bachev


This paper suggests a holistic approach for analyzing, assessing and improving the system of eco-management in the modern stage of development of Bulgarian agriculture as a specific system for governing human activity for protection of natural environment. The principal mechanisms and modes of agro-eco-management are specified, the factors for agro-eco-management are identified and stages in improvement are described, which is perceived as a permanent, not a temporary process. Approaches and indicators for assessment are proposed, aiming at minimizing the overall costs for eco-management. The goal is to facilitate the interdisciplinary analyses and estimations in this sphere in order to contribute to improve the social policies, the forms of social intervention and public ecoprograms, as well as the individual, business and collective strategies and activities for sustainable development of this sector under the conditions of a dynamically changing social, economic, institutional and natural environment.
