ODEMM has developed a range of tools and methods which can be used alone or in combination to carry out assessments and aid decision making.

Linkage Framework

The ODEMM Linkage Framework is a tool to understand the pathways through which sector-activities affect ecological components. The Linkage Framework can help with decision support and visualisation of the system.

Pressure Assessment

The ODEMM Pressure Assessment is a tool to assess and rank the threat associated with any particular sector/pressure combination on any ecological component. This tool follows on from the Linkage Framework outputs by helping to determine which sectors and activities to prioritise for management.
