STAGE 2: Establish decision-making criteria
This stage sets out to operationalize the broad objectives established in Stage 1 by identifying specific criteria for decision-making. These criteria will be deployed, and likely refined, in assessing risk and appraising adaptation options during later stages of this process. It is also important to anticipate constraints, or barriers, to decision making, including those originating from:
- The legislative, institutional and regulatory environment
- Competing objectives of other stakeholders and decision-makers
- Resources available for the decision-making process
