Description

A key aim of developing environmental models and software is to provide decision and information support to environmental policy and management. For example, integrated assessment models (IAM) and decision support systems (DSS) have been identified as being well suited to providing information support to complex decision processes. In developing such technologies we hope to provide tools which exert a positive impact on policy and management processes, actions and outcomes. We want to contribute to a diverse range of objectives from better managing scarce resources, through mediating and avoiding conflict, to maintaining adaptive potential and promoting sustainable development. But what impacts do environmental decision and information support tools (DISTs) have on policy and management? Are they positive? How do we know? To answer these questions we wish to better understand DIST impacts and how to measure them. To be effective, the development of environmental models and software must be informed by knowledge of the value and impact that such tools provide to policy and management organisations.
