Decision Support Tree

What is the decision support tree and why do we need it?

​The decision support tree will be a "one stop" website where users can walk through a series of questions that will help them identify the best climate tool for their needs.  Stakeholders have identified guidance in climate tool and model selection as a critical need - it can be difficult to find the right tool and overwhelming to know which tool to select.

What's planned for the project?

​We will host a series of workshops across the Gulf states to understand stakeholder needs, develop the online decision support tree, and write fact sheets for each of the tools in the tree over the next year (2016-17).

Who are the target audiences?

​Local and regional governments, planners, natural resource professionals, communities, and other interested in climate change issues across the Gulf of Mexico.

Part 1: Sharing the Knowledge

To get started, we need your input to make the decision-support tree and website success. During this half-day meeting, tell us about: 1) the impact of climate related issues important to your community, 2) how are you using climate tools/models, and 3) the features that will help you make better choices when using our new online decision-support tree. Free lunch provided.

Part 2: Seeing the Results

Next year, we'll host a second meeting to share the decision-support tree. You'll get to test the new decision-support tree hands-on and give us feedback. (We are working to make CEU credits available for this event). Free lunch provided.
