The term human well-being refers to people’s ability to live a life they value. Human well-being is a collection of factors that can include cultural heritage, health, education, access to ecosystem services, legally recognized rights, as well as tangible assets such as material wealth and income-generating opportunities.
What constitutes human wellbeing differs for each group and will reflect its history, local culture and norms, political and socio-economic conditions, geography and ecological circumstances. Wongbusarakum et a. 2014.
