Testing the adoption of decision support tools with end-users

Guidance on decision support tools for ecosystem-based management (April 2024)

The utility of guidance, frameworks, and tools (GFTs) developed by Sustainable Seas National Science Challenge partners were tested with two different groups of end-users. The process with both cases included moments of reflection amongst the group as to the utility of the GFTs to assist decision making.
