 Human well-being means the context- and situation-dependent state of humans - a state that is “intrinsically and not just instrumentally valuable” (or good) for a person or a societal group (Reid 2005) ((Reid, W. V. (Ed.) (2005): Ecosystems and human well-being. Synthesis; a report of the Millennium Ecosystem Assessment, MEA - Millennium Ecosystem Assessment & WRI - World Resources Institute. Washington, DC.)). In the MEA (Reid 2005) ((Reid, W. V. (Ed.) (2005): Ecosystems and human well-being. Synthesis; a report of the Millennium Ecosystem Assessment, MEA - Millennium Ecosystem Assessment & WRI - World Resources Institute. Washington, DC.)) components (or drivers) of human well-being have been classified (similarly to Reid) into: basic material for a good life, freedom and choice, health and bodily well-being, good social relations, security, peace of mind, and spiritual experience; not precluding other classifications (Alexandrova 2012) ((Alexandrova,​ A. (2012): Well-Being as an Object of Science.
