On 15th May 2017, David Rose and Rebecca Robertson led an inter-disciplinary workshop assessing the role of decision support tools in conservation thanks to support from University Cambridge Conservation Research Institute
, Luc Hoffmann Institute
and the EU-BON project
. A whole host of designers and users had the opportunity to network and co-produce knowledge on what makes a good decision support tool. The workshop stressed the importance of engaging users at every stage of a project, including from conception, through design, and after implementation. A World Cafe style exhibition allowed users to test various decision support tools aimed at supporting conservation decisions. Here are some of the highlights.
