Abstract A pertinent question inadequately addressed in research on ecological systems and their societal management is "What is the role of environmental impact assessment in the governance of social-ecological systems? ” More particularly, “How do the different EIA procedures relate to governance functions? " The conceptual framework developed in this paper addresses the linkage between social and ecological systems and their governance functions. It is developed in a stepwise fashion and includes: an explanation of the link from ecosystem goods and services via the human value system to the social system. The link between the social system and the ecosystem is also explored and the position of traditional environmental impact assessment therein is established. The lack of EIA procedures for assessing the impacts of institutional interventions is highlighted.
