This chapter utilizes a policy evaluation study as an example of the utility of the Delphi method in climate change policymaking. In this study the Delphi method assisted in prioritizing the criteria used in the evaluation. The need for policy evaluation is not only emphasized within environmental research but also policymakers and administrators are more frequently articulating the necessity for environmental policy evaluations. This chapter discusses the Delphi method as a useful instrument in environmental policy research. Based on the findings of the Delphi study conducted to facilitate climate change policies assessment in Australia the authors analyse the strengths and limitations of the method.
