Issue ID Step

Go to manual

A SAF application starts with the task called `Issue Identification. `Once upon a time,' our tale might begin, `scientists were talking together, when a stakeholder rushed into the room and said, "I've been impacted by a Human Activity, and something must be done!". Whereupon the scientists got together with other stakeholders and with environmental managers, identified the cause-&-effect chain from HA to impact, who was responsible for the HA, who was affected by it, what the economic consequences were, and some management options for ameliorating the impact. And thus `Issue Resolution was accomplished and the SAF application got underway.'
