Decision science and data tools

Scrabble pieces read "decision making"Science is not enough. We need to translate knowledge into action to produce positive outcomes in biodiversity conservation. That is why one of our main goals at the ASU Center for Biodiversity Outcomes is to develop evidence-based tools that inform action across all sectors: NGOs, governments and corporations. A significant challenge to these organizations in measuring and valuing biodiversity is a lack of standardized assessment sets and indicators. We integrate disparate data and develop decision tools to account for the full suite of specific risks agencies in various sectors face. We provide data and analytics in customized, user-defined formats through our partnership with the ASU Decision Theater. These formats can range from traditional presentations of data and results to more advanced, interactive decision-making tools. Learn more about our various tools and implementation.
