Environmental Decision Making
How can science be mobilized for better decision making? And how can values, an integral part of the decision-making process, be made more explicit and transparent? A cross-institutional team of collaborators from CHF, the University of Maryland, the EPA, and the CDC are working to develop just such a system. Using a tool developed within the EPA called MIRA—Multi-Integral Resource Assessment—the team hopes to develop a system for decision making that can be used to increase the visibility of science in environmental decision making, help highlight research needs, and increase involvement from diverse stakeholders in the decision-making process.
