  2. 2. Section 6: Prioritising New Ideas, Opportunities and Solutions
  3. 3. + Where are we? Defining the Vision Setting goals or status statements Identifying options or alternatives Brainstorming Innovative ideas
  4. 4. + In this Section you will learn about….  The importance of alternatives  Process for prioritising options or alternatives
  5. 5. + The Importance of Alternatives There are usually several different ways of resolving transboundary environmental problems and achieving global benefits In formulating the SAP, all choices available to politicians must be documented A particular solution should not be pre- selected but there will need to be some form of prioritisation
  6. 6. + ….is key to brainstorming and an integral part of any strategic planning process Often limited available resources Helps to identify which innovative ideas or opportunities should be considered further Prioritisation….

  8. 8. + Option 1: Construction of tertiary treatment plants as part of a more comprehensive sewage treatment and disposal strategy Choice of strategies for reducing the input of nutrients from sewage to aquatic systems Option 2: Enhancement of the natural capacity of the system to remove nutrients through the restoration or creation of wetlands
  9. 9. + How to choose?  The choice depends on the balance between costs and benefits.  The balance depends on factors that vary from place to place (local economics, investment costs and the costs of operation and maintenance).  It is also highly influenced by culture and worldviews: highly technological solutions are favoured in some societies whereas others prefer ‘green’ approaches.  Both options must be explained to the policymakers. No particular ‘lobby’ can be allowed to insist on its own approach.
  10. 10. + Process for prioritising options or alternatives Step 1: Identification of innovative ideas and opportunities that target the leverage points and meet the identified vision and goals Step 2: Identifying Options or Alternatives: Selection of ideas, opportunities or solutions that best meet the needs and realities of the region
  11. 11. + Step 2: Identifying Options or Alternatives  The purpose of this step is to identify the ideas, opportunities or solutions that best meet the needs and realities of the region  The outcome will be an table of prioritised alternative ideas, opportunities or solutions that will provide the basis for more detailed in- country consultations and discussions on options or alternatives
  12. 12. + Criteria Reference to the cause identified in the causal chain Reference to specific leverage points Stakeholders involved Legal, institutional or policy reforms required Approximate cost Anticipated outputs Time required for implementation Indicators of success Relative priority, high, medium, or low Uncertainties
  13. 13. + Group Exercise In groups of 5:  Review the ideas, opportunities or solutions and determine:  Approximate cost  Benefit  Time required for implementation  Assign a priority (high, medium, low) for each idea, opportunity or solution Timing: 40 minutes
