Inclusive development of social entrepreneurship in nature management

Keywords: inclusive development, social entrepreneurship, nature management, index approach


Social entrepreneurship development in Ukraine is a priority guideline based on the creation and improvement of government policy on ecosystem orientation and inclusion, which provides public access to tourism and natural resources. The main component of inclusive development of social entrepreneurship emphasizes the basic principles of its existence, such as the ability to achieve one’s own goals, despite the economic effect of one’s activities. In the quantitative comparative analysis and need to reach economic indicators, the main factors are determined by the idea of inclusive development in nature management, as a field of activity in which not only the state but also multidisciplinary international organizations invest. The aim of the article is to identify opportunities for inclusive nature management development in social entrepreneurship in Ukraine by summarizing the existing practice of using indices and identifying indicators that will correspond to inclusive nature management parameters. Determining the position and directions of social entrepreneurship development in Ukraine was determined using an index approach, which, in contrast to others, allows one to identify indicators that characterize the sphere of development on economic and environmental influence of the country on the basis of inclusivity. The analysis of international rating assessments and Ukraine’s place in them requires a rethinking of existing approaches to the search for economically feasible ways to improve socio-economic and environmental indicators and their rating positions. The method of multi-indicator immersion is used in the article to identify the main indicators of economic, inclusive growth and social components, which are due to the experience in nature management and characterize the development of social entrepreneurship. The calculations of the Inclusive Development Index of Social Entrepreneurship in Ukraine as a consolidated index according to the geometric formula, which comprised synthetic indicators of the human capital index to outline the inclusive range of components, brand index and index of environmental indicators, proved that today the ecological state of environment and health of the population have a significant negative impact on economic growth and welfare of the population.
