Terms Definitions
Lack of observations/measurements
Legal uncertainty One of the seven types of uncertainty distinguished by De Marchi et al. in their checklist for characterizing uncertainty in environmental emergencies: institutional, legal, moral, proprietary, scientific, situational, and societal uncertainty. Legal uncertainty is relevant "wherever agents must consider future contingencies of personal liability for their actions (or inactions)". High legal uncertainty can result in defensive responses in regard to both decision making and release of information. Legal uncertainty may also play a role where actions are conditioned on the clarity or otherwise of a legal framework in allowing one to predict the consequences of particular actions.
Leidraad Leidraad is a Dutch word and has no satisfactory English equivalent. It constitutes an offering of guidance which can be taken up if it helps or discarded if not.
