The main objective of the deliverable D1.2 “Stakeholders’ objectives and decision-making criteria and mutual interdependencies” is to describe stakeholders’ objectives, decision making criteria and mutual interdependencies. In order to deal with this task, the methodology of a rapid actor-institional analysis is applied to four of the the five case studies of WP5. The goal here is to develop an understanding of the key-issues in the neighbourhood, in order to be able to organise a process/debate regarding these key-issues, ambitions, alternative futures, and actions to take, in which mobilisation of decision support software is useful. In order to make these decisions we need at least a preliminary insight in who the main actors are (including weak actors), their interests, and their problems/needs. But, we also need a preliminary insight in their ‘logics’ or ‘institutional frames’. From a first understanding of both the actors and their institutional frames, seperate but interconnected ongoing dynamics in the cases are identified, in which seperate groups of actors have different objectives and decision-making criteria.
