Decision Support Tool Suitability: Helping Decision Makers Choose Your Tools

This webinar with Dr. Holly Hartmann, Director of Climate Science Adaptations for Carpe Diem West, focuses on criteria for choosing a decision support tool from among the ever-changing mix of available and emerging tools.

Decision makers are often overwhelmed by the proliferation of decision support tools, uncertain whether they have sufficiently inventoried available tools, and hesitant to commit to use of new tools given the investment in learning and trust of users involved in their adoption.

The DST Suitability Evaluation Framework is adapted from the NSF/EPA CLEAN protocols used for K-16 climate change education tools, modified by evaluating several hundred resources in the water resources and land management sectors. Criteria within this framework address characteristics of ancillary training and community support, as well as of the tools and their scientific basis.
