Multi-Scaled Vulnerability Analyses: Improving Decision-Making at Regional to Local Levels Through Partnership

Abstract:Decision-makers at all scales are faced with setting priorities for both use of limited resources and for risk management. While there are all kinds of monitoring data and models to project conditions at different spatial and temporal scales, synthesized information to establish context and perspective and allow for strategic planning and action is lacking. ORD's Regional Vulnerability Assessment (ReVA) Program has been working over the past 6 years to develop methods to make use of existing data and models such that conditions and vulnerabilities can be projected across geographic regions to identify areas at highest risk from multiple stresses or where opportunities exist to improve broad-scale environmental conditions. ReVA's research results are made available in a customizable, web-based integration and visualization toolkit ReVA's Environmental Decision Toolkit or EDT) that can address a suite of assessment questions. To improve accessibility of this type of information, ReVA has partnered with decision-makers at the regional, state, and local levels with real-life decisions that need to be made.
