    ABSTRACT: The sustainability assessment on socio-ecological systems requires a systemic perspective in order to address the close relationships between the environmental and socio-economic processes. This need is especially urgent in the case of arid insular systems where limiting factors, as land and water resources, are more evident. The hyperarid island of Fuerteventura (The Canary Islands, Spain) represents a challenging case due to the need for compatibilizing the rising tourist development with the sustainable management of its natural resources, highly vulnerable due to processes such as the degradation of natural habitats – which hosts endemic and endangered species – or the high dependence of allocthonous energy sources for basic processes, including water supply.
