ENGAGING STAKEHOLDERS IN NATURAL RESOURCE DECISION-MAKING
Crawford, B.A., R.A. Katz, and S.K. McKay.
ERDC/TN EMRRP-SR-83, 15 pp, 2017

Participatory decision-making hinges on stakeholder engagement—a process that includes fostering a shared understanding of the issue, stakeholder buy-in, and co-creation of solutions as an effective means to address an issue. Although many resources have described methods and tools for executing participatory decision-making (e.g., decision analysis), few resources describe effective methods for initiating the process of stakeholder engagement, which often presents a key barrier to participatory decision-making. Steps for initiating the stakeholder engagement process, discussion of common challenges encountered, and best practices for overcoming them are presented. https://usace.contentdm.oclc.org/digital/api/collection/p266001coll1/id/4489/download
