The Sierra Nevada Example: Survey of Stakeholders
- 2.3k Downloads
We turn now to practical aspects of the elicitation and analysis of stakeholder preferences and the application of the results to the learning network approach. We suggest that the techniques proposed in this chapter and the next can provide valuable insights into stakeholder preferences and their consequences that might otherwise be overlooked. The linking of preferences to potential consequences may help clarify the role of values in public participatory processes.
