Description:
Economic, social, human and natural capital are all inter-linked and are constantly changing. All four types of capital contribute directly to human well-being. Economic and social capital are seen most commonly through the production of food, which creates jobs and generates income, allowing for direct reinvestment in economic capital. Natural capital, on the other hand, is often an afterthought in the decision-making and planning process, if at all. The natural capital of marine ecosystems has not always been used sustainably, as society. This is because society has often failed to reinvest the proceeds generated by increased social and economic capital in the protection, management and restoration of marine ecosystems.
