Measuring eco-innovation helps us understand the overall trends and raises awareness in society. Measuring eco-innovation at the national level and making comparisons across countries may allow us to benchmark performance and foster policy learning. This paper assesses two indices developed in two different regions: The ASEM Eco-Innovation Index (ASEI) by the ASEM SMEs Eco-Innovation Center, based in Republic of Korea; and the Eco-Innovation Scoreboard (Eco-IS) developed by the Eco-Innovation Observatory, based in the European Union. This paper aims to examine and compare the features of both and attempts to obtain insights on their strengths and weaknesses. Towards this aim, our paper assesses those scoreboards against four criteria stemming from innovation analysis: (1) relevance of areas and stakeholders covered; (2) ability to indicate changes; (3) directions towards common goals; and (4) ability to facilitate further changes. We conclude both are promising, despite data shortages, and have great potential to contribute towards the sustainable development goals (SDGs), particularly with regard to the SDGs on sustainable industrialization and sustainable consumption and production. In comparison, the ASEI covers more countries than the Eco-IS. However, the ASEI has limitations on measuring indicators due to limited data availability in Asian countries. The Eco-IS is closely linked with the regional and national policies for eco-innovation in Europe, while the ASEI’s impact appears more limited, as of now. In conclusion, the research results give insights into key areas, goals and applications of eco-innovation indices, and can help upgrading eco-innovation indices. This research helps interpret the scores of two indices better and facilitate application of the scores in the multiple ways. It is expected that this research contributes to developing and modifying a global eco-innovation index and enhancing the ability of these indices to facilitate eco-innovation strategies at national levels and across relevant actors.

Social capital provides an overview of a community's togetherness, unity, and mutual trust in achieving common goals towards sustainable development. Community forest management requires a certain level of social capital for sustainable forest management. This study aims to identify and analyze key factors influencing the community's social capital in forest management. The key factors influencing the level of social capital in a community include internal factors such as individual characteristics and knowledge of community forest management, and external factors such as extension activities, the role of the forest farmer group, and access to information. Using the theoretical framework of social capital and multiple linear regression models, we found that social capital was significantly influenced by both internal and external factors, indicating a need to improve these factors. To increase the value of social capital for maintaining the sustainability of community forest management, the results of this Indonesian case suggest that individual characteristics, procedural knowledge of community forest management, and the role of forest farmer groups need to be considered for forest management based on the social capital of forest communities.
