dc.description.abstractU.S. Army Corps of Engineers (2000) states, “A clear definition of objectives and constraints is essential to the success of the planning process.” Proper articulation of a complete and clear set of objectives paves the way for metric and model development, alternative formulation, and plan comparison. Although the importance of objectives is well-acknowledged, coming to agreement on a set of objectives is challenging for large-scale, multi-faceted ecosystem restoration projects. This technical note briefly reviews techniques to guide objective setting and demonstrates their application to an estuary restoration project in Currituck Sound, North Carolina. Although the objectives developed are project-specific, the approach to setting and structuring the objectives is transferrable to other ecosystem restoration projects.en_US
