Task 10


Module 4 — Task 10: Rank the Issues

At the completion of this task, the assessment team should have:

  • A list of environmental health issues, ranked according to locally defined criteria.

At this point, the team uses the profiles developed in Task 9 to compare issues according to the relative importance of each issue against all other environmental health issues identified by the community. This section describes a technique for undertaking a standardized ranking process. The technique can be adapted to suit the needs and goals of the team. Explicit discussions about why one issue is more important than another will contribute to both a collective appreciation for community values and a greater understanding of the issues themselves. The following steps focus on developing criteria, selecting a ranking method, and carrying out the ranking process.

Listen as Eric Faisst discusses ranking exercises.
