Another additional tool is the use of an appraisal framework, described as a qualitative appraisal of impact of good practices/mechanism/solutions related to specific challenges.
Its criteria are based on collected data on e.g. accessibility, safety, health, environment, value, noise, compactness, robustness, excitability and sustainability. During the first Vital Nodes workshop in urban node Vienna those aspects are taken into account while looking at the specific situation, challenges and possible solutions.
This appraisal framework is in this stage of the project Vital Nodes under development. The content, experiences and input from the future urban node workshops are also important for this development.
