Description

Local Integrating Organizations (LIOs) provide a mechanism for the Puget Sound Partnership to work directly, in a coordinated way, with local communities to help prioritize actions and implement the Action Agenda consistent with regional priorities and ecosystem recovery targets at a watershed or multi-watershed scale. The Puget Sound Partnership is developing decision support to more effectively integrate these priorities into the Action Agenda (2014 updates and subsequent revisions). This development is proceeding in several steps: a pilot study with a single LIO, interviews with all LIOs, preparation of draft guidance for prioritizing actions, and training for LIO coordinators in facilitating an enhanced process. We present an analysis of our findings so far and how we anticipate that this work will contribute to improved decision quality for the Puget Sound region.
