Jess Chandler’s comment on Jam’s original Evaltalk post about population ecology and program sustainability

You may want to look at ecological economics methods. In this field, principles of ecology are considered as a guide to organize economic measures. You may find some useful methods to apply to evaluation.

I used ecological economics to frame an evaluation of community sustainability for my dissertation, and I recall struggling quite a bit with metrics and how to “box up” those things that are difficult to measure with typical data until I applied this framework.
