A critical appraisal of why environmental policies succeed and fail, Environmental Policymaking and Stakeholder Collaboration, (PDF) offers policymakers with the keys to navigating complex environmental issues and stakeholder negotiations. It includes theories in environmental policymaking and stakeholder management, compares and contrasts successful and failed process and policy, and covers practical guidelines and tools for the practitioner.
More than just a theoretical examination, the ebook presents an exhaustive tool kit of more than 70 practical and applied ideas to lead the implementation of inclusive stakeholder collaboration. These ideas can be used by organizations and governments to improve decision making and make sure that stakeholders and the general public have a say in public policy. The ebook covers theories of stakeholder collaboration, constructing an understanding of why stakeholder collaboration is simultaneously important for effective policymaking and why it is so challenging. While the focus of this ebook is on environmental policymaking, the tools and theories can be applied to any issue. The government cannot be expected to resolve our public problems in isolation: we must assure that diverse interests are heard and represented in the policymaking process. This ebook is more than just a theoretical treatise about stakeholder collaboration; it is also a collection of practical and applied tools to assure that collaboration is put into practice in ways that are meaningful and effective. It helps people with a passion for the environment understand how to make their voices heard and helps governments understand how to listen.
