Ecosystem Services and Decision Making

This interdisciplinary project, led by Dr. Kai Chan, involves the development of a sustainability-oriented decision-making process. We use ecosystem services in conjunction with Structured Decision-Making (SDM) and Life Cycle-Analysis (LCA) to propose a new method for organizational decision-making as it relates to social and ecological concerns.
