About this book


Science and Stakeholders provides a conceptual framework for stakeholder involvement, followed by case studies to explore how to integrate and collaborate among diverse stakeholders and communities to solve environmental and energy-related problems.  Stakeholder participation should result in more transparent and acceptable solutions that protect both human and ecological health. Many of the chapters are about place-based environmental management, but all of the chapters deal with how stakeholders have improved (or failed to improve) decision-making processes. The final chapters discuss the role of communication and the media, and a synthesis of stakeholder participation.  Although not directly about energy itself, one chapter discusses a range of energy sources and how stakeholders can interact, and each chapter describes in detail the environmental or energy-related issue being discussed. This is the first book to examine how science and stakeholders interact in an open and transparent manner to solve otherwise difficult and contentious issues related to energy and the environment.
