This initiative facilitates exchange among and between researchers and decision-makers through various media and fora. Exchange among researchers emphasizes collaborative development of methodologies for identifying appropriate technologies, practices, and policies with wide applicability. Exchange among decision-makers emphasizes collaborative development and sharing of decision-support tools and methods. Exchange between researchers and decision-makers emphasizes the comparison between the needs of decision-makers (demands) and the characteristics of the decision-support products provided by the researchers (supply) as well as lessons learned along the way. The project supports traditional face-to-face meetings (workshops, symposia, etc.), electronic conferences, and publications.
