Make use of previously identified primary interests.

Look for exist­ing sci­ence-based or social­ly-inclu­sive pri­or­i­ty- or goal-set­ting process­es that have already iden­ti­fied pri­ma­ry inter­ests. Pri­or­i­ties defined in sep­a­rate process­es may save both you and stake­hold­er’s time and resources. For instance, non-prof­its, gov­ern­ment plan­ning process­es, devel­op­ment orga­ni­za­tions, sci­en­tif­ic bod­ies, and indus­try groups may have pro­duced ecore­gion­al assess­ments, devel­op­ment goals, future tra­jec­to­ries, or pri­or­i­ties that may be rel­e­vant as pri­ma­ry interests.
