Details of the Request

"The ultimate organising principle of any life-coherent society or economy through generational time is secure access to means of life/life goods otherwise in short supply (ie., the production and distribution of goods and the protection of ecosystem services). Any social or economic system succeeds/falls short/fails to the extent that it does/does not so secure, produce, distribute means of life/life goods.
Therefore, in the context of ""the environment"", where are the Universal Human Life Needs/Necessities named? And connected?
In other words, by what criterion does the ""Ministry of the Environment"" ensure the security of access to means of life for the New Zealand population through generational time?"
