Step 8: Communicate the results

Appropriately communicating the assessment’s results is the last step, but by no means the least important, as it has important implications for decision-makers.

1. Describing the process to decision-makers

.Decision-makers are rarely aware of the assessment procedure, the underlying method’s strengths and weakness or the uncertainties associated with the values assessed, yet this knowledge is important in improving the decisions made. For this reason, the assessment procedure should be described to decision-makers rather than appearing as a black-box.
