The Case for Small Groups: Public Participation in Forest Management Decisions
Abstract:Diverse interest groups, often with conflicting goals, are demanding voices in setting the goals of land management. If goals are to reflect informed opinion, compromise and opportunities for mutual advantage, managers and conflicting interest groups must interact sufficiently to identify tradeoffs. Small working groups, with sustained interaction among representatives of conflicting interests, offer a solution.
