Gender and social interaction: calculation model of ecological and economic indicators for sustainable development of the region

Keywords: gender; social interaction; sustainable development; social policy; regional development


The paper proposes a model for calculating the integrated ecological and economic indicator, which has considerable potential for application as a reliable instrument for the expenditures harmonization for environmental and social purposes, namely gender and social interactions, as part of the sustainable development paradigm implementation at the regional level. It has been shown that the use of three-factor functions (factors of industrial development, environmental investments and structural changes in the economy) allows obtaining more relevant results for making managerial decisions by more accurate description of real processes. It has been proved that the social component ought to take into account the gender peculiarities of regional development and be reflected in decision-making procedures of local authorities, namely, the gender components of the region's development have to be reflected in statistical reporting and be subject to the requirements of the Sustainable Development Goals, which are officially approved by the Ukrainian government. Gender interactions have to be the subject to a comprehensive study of region sustainable development based on increasing the social significance of attracting vulnerable strata of the population to active labor and political activities, increasing the efficiency of "social lifts", forming stable equal relations between territorial communities of different levels of economic development and financial capacity. The main task is to find the balance of interests between the needs of certain types of economic activity development in the region, the development of social parameters and the need to preserve the environment. It has been noted that the most effective means of finding this balance is the corresponding economic and mathematical instrumentarium. Moreover, the necessity of such interaction realization on the conditions of balanced support of the national economy functioning in terms of reproductive, technological, activity-specific and external macroeconomic proportions determines the use of the balance-sheet method of "input-output" and balance-based models build upon it. Therefore, the actual issues of scientific and practical support of sustainable development process implementation at the regional level identify the tools for taking into account the influence factors on social policy in the context of the principles introduction of such development. The study of specific cases of the ecological and economic modeling methods use to substantiate effective social policy at the regional level has considerable real possibilities for detailed elaboration, which also results in the use of separate mechanisms of ecological and economic modeling for the needs of effective social policy conduct at the regional level.
