Welcome to CRAFT!

" "RAFT - Comparative Risk Assessment Framework and Tools - is designed to lead natural resource managers through an integrated assessment of the risks, uncertainties, and trade-offs that surround forest and rangeland management. CRAFT helps to identify and clarify objectives, design alternatives, assess probable effects, and compare and communicate risks. Craft - puzzle logo

Features:

  • Provides a structured approach to identifying and clarifying competing objectives.
  • Matches real-life problems to existing models and tools.
  • Uses belief networks (a probability-based modeling approach) to integrate data, model outputs, and personal beliefs.
  • Calculates the relative risks and tradeoffs associated with alternative management scenarios.
  • Identifies which variables and assumptions have the greatest influence.
