Q. What is Project Selection?

Project Selection is a process to assess each project idea and select the project with the highest priority.
Projects are still just suggestions at this stage, so the selection is often made based on only brief descriptions of the project. As some projects will only be ideas, you may need to write a brief description of each project before conducting the selection process.

Selection of projects is based on:
Benefits: A measure of the positive outcomes of the project. These are often described as "the reasons why you are undertaking the project". The types of benefits of eradication projects include:

  • Biodiversity
  • Economic
  • Social and cultural

Fulfilling commitments made as part of national, regional or international plans and agreements.

Feasibility: A measure of the likelihood of the project being a success, i.e. achieving its objectives. Projects vary greatly in complexity and risk. By considering feasibility when selecting projects it means the easiest projects with the greatest benefits are given priority.
