In recent years, there has been an increasing demand for informed decision-making processes to address complex challenges at local, regional and global levels. For example, as part of the activities of international organizations like the United Nations (UN), or as defined by international agreements, several policy goals to be achieved in a defined timespan have been set. They include the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the objectives of the Sendai Framework on Disasters, the objectives of the Paris Agreement on Climate Change. The achievement of these policy goals can be evaluated in respect of specific policy targets. The assessment of targets, and the definition of possible actions towards their fulfilment require informed decision-making at different levels.
