  Expert Elicitation: Methodological suggestions for its use in environmental health impact assessment  Popular
Description: Expert Elicitation: Methodological suggestions for its use in environmental health impact assessments
This document contains three parts: (1) an introduction, (2) an overview with building blocks and methodological suggestions for a formal expert elicitation procedure; and (3) a literature list with key sources of information used and suggestions for further reading. A glossary is provided in Appendix 1. Part one starts with the scope and aim of this document, and continues with a brief introduction to the issue of uncertainty in environmental Health Impact Assessments. The potential usefulness of expert elicitation in exploring particular uncertainties is then issued, thereby focusing on quantifiable input for which no reliable data is available (uncertain quantities), such as a particular exposure-response-function. Part two is intended as guidance to build a formal (i.e. well-developed, structured, systematic, transparent, traceable, and documented) expert elicitation procedure that is tailored to the particular research question and the uncertainties at hand. To this end, an overview (Figure 1) and possible basic building blocks are provided. For each building block, methodological suggestions are provided with a view to refer the reader to a range (variety) of possible methods. Yet this overview does not claim to be exhaustive nor representative of all published methodologies for expert elicitation.

  Tool Catalogue of RIVM/MNP Guidance for Uncertainty Assessment and Communication  Popular
Description: This report contains the Tool Catalogue of the RIVM/MNP Guidance for Uncertainty Assessment and Communication, Authors: J.P. van der Sluijs, P.H.M. Janssen, A.C. Petersen, P. Kloprogge, J.S. Risbey, W. Tuinstra, J.R. Ravetz.
For each tool it gives a brief description of what it does and how it works and it provides information on:
  • What sorts and locations of uncertainty does this tool address?
  • What resources are required to use the tool?
  • Strengths and limitations of each tool
  • Some guidance on the application of the tools and hints on complementarity with other tools
  • Typical pitfalls of each tool
  • References to handbooks, user-guides, example case studies, web sites and in-house and external experts who have knowledge on and experience with each tool and who may be consulted by RIVM for further advice.

  Uncertainty and climate change adaptation - a scoping study  Popular
Description: This report reviews state-of-the-art of methods and tools available in the literature in helping inform adaptation decisions. We focus on the assessment of climate change uncertainties. Further, the report reviews existing frameworks for decision making under uncertainty for adaptation to climate change. The report explores how different ways of including uncertainty in decision making match with uncertainty information provided by the various uncertainty assessment methods. It reviews a broad range of areas of climate change impacts and impacted sectors of society and economy that may require a response of planned adaptation.
