Functional application matrix for identification of potential combinations of improvement measures
To mitigate the impacts of hydropower on fish a set of mitigation measures has been collected (see D4.1). Each mitigation measure is scored with respect to its suitability for mitigating challenges and problems. The matrix also shows how different mitigation measures can be combined. The scoring and matrix is shown in the excel spreadsheet.
The report also describes the framework for using Bayesian networks to identify potential combinations of mitigation measures that are most likely to succeed and are most effective. These combinations will include trade-offs between the cost of the mitigation measures and their effectiveness. The framework will be tested in selected FIThydro Test Cases. The full test with the application of the framework will be reported in D4.6 and in a scientific article.
