How are Information Needs Determined?

Much background work may be necessary to review the legal and regulatory framework affecting an environmental issue before beginning information needs analysis. Important aspects to review include the historic progression of policies and practices leading to the current situation; the need to accommodate, not conflict with related policies and plans; and the degree of mutual confidence and cooperation amongst the stakeholders concerned. Such knowledge injects realism into the information needs analysis, and helps identify what information may be needed for practical policy changes.
