Appraisal Step Examples

ESE Components

Prepare the ESE Models for Coupling

Review ESE Models relative to Appraisal objectives
Integrate any links to other models or products of analyses. | Example
Run ESE Models separately for purposes of Interpretive analyses

Conduct ESE Interpretive Analyses

Functionality of the Natural Component (NC) Model: Results, Limits, Ecosystem Stability, Restorative Potential. | Example
Scope of Economic Component (EC) Model: Results, Limits, Opportunities for Sustainable Development. | Example | Example 2
Scope of Social Component (SC) Model: Results; Limits, Relevance to Sustainable Development, Role of Stakeholders and Governance | Example | Example 2

Systems simulations

Construct the Simulation Model

Review Inputs, linkages, outputs for the Simulation Model | Example
Construct Simulation Model by linking up the ESE models | Example | Example 2
Verify the Simulation Model, conduct Sensitivity tests, Error analysis, and Document
Conduct a Hindcast simulation with Policy or other change | Example | Example 2

Run Scenario Simulations

Review and evaluate priority and feasibility of scenarios | Example | Example 2
Generate necessary input data for selected scenarios | Example | Example 2
Prepare, conduct, and test scenario versions of the Simulation Model | Example | Example 2 | Example 3
Document Results of Scenarios | Example

Output preparations
