Abstract: Much has been written recently about heedless development policies and the environmental disasters they have re- sulted in. However, although it is easy in hindsight to recognize that certain environmental decisions were improperly made, in reality environmental decision- making is a challenging task. National or region-specific environmental decisions typically affect multiple stakeholders with diverse priorities or objectives. Hence reaching an accord that balances the integrity of the ecosystem with the needs of stakeholders requires multidiscipli- nary knowledge bases that integrate in- formation from the natural, social and medical sciences.
