Making Decisions On Complex Environmental Issues

Decision Analysis for a Sustainable Environment, Economy, and Society (DASEES) is an open-source, web-based decision analysis framework, being developed by an integrated trans-disciplinary research team of EPA, university, and private company researchers. DASEES focuses on sustainable systems and communities. Referred to in technical circles as "multi-attribute decision analysis", DASEES is flexible but rigorous, transparent and auditable, and adapts to new information.  Benefits of this approach is that it is inclusive and incorporates input from many stakeholders that are affected by decisions on environmental issues, and considers many of the physical, chemical, and biological aspects of ecosystems.
