The primary aim of Christine's thesis research, entitled "Integrating decision support tools into natural resource management investment planning processes",  is to improve our understanding of decision processes within regional NRM organisations and to explain why investment decision support tools have not been more widely adopted. Surveys, interviews and case study observations will be used to collate data for analysis in a mixed method research approach. Adaptive theory methods will be used to develop concepts and theory about the use of decision support tools in NRM organisations.
