Decision-Making Using Existing Data

spacer

Abstract:Decision-makers need information on cumulative and aggregate stressors as well as clear information on where problems are likely to occur in the future in order to prioritize risk management actions. The most prevasive and difficult to assess changes are the result of regional-scale drivers of change that act simultaneously on a suite of resources that are important to society and to ecological sustainability. A great deal of data already exist that could potentially inform risk management decision, however, there has been no effort previously to synthesize these data into meaningful assessment results that can inform the multiple criteria that go into any kind of decision-making. Methods to do this are critical to timely, responsive, and proactive decision-making.
