Science supporting shared stewardship: Rocky Mountain Research Station

Publications Posted on: March 17, 2021
Shared stewardship is about working together in an integrated way to make decisions for the land. The USDA Forest Service (USFS) works collaboratively with stakeholders to set landscape-scale priorities and to invest in projects that will have the most impact. USFS Research & Development has played a key role in developing and supporting the USDA Shared Stewardship Strategy.

Examining the social acceptability of forest biomass harvesting and utilization from collaborative forest landscape restoration: A case study from western Colorado, USA

Publications Posted on: January 10, 2018
Collaborative efforts have expanded in recent years to reduce fuel loads and restore the resilience of forest landscapes to future fires. The social acceptability of harvesting and using forest biomass associated with these programs are a hot topic, with questions about the extent to which collaboration can generate unified acceptance.

Rethinking climate change adaptation and place through a situated pathways framework: A case study from the Big Hole Valley, USA

Publications Posted on: August 29, 2017

Ethical implications of democratic theory for U.S. public participation in environmental impact assessment

Publications Posted on: August 01, 2012
Traditional mechanisms for public participation in environmental impact assessment under U.S. federal law have been criticized as ineffective and unable to resolve conflict. As these mechanisms are modified and new approaches developed, we argue that participation should be designed and evaluated not only on practical grounds of cost-effectiveness and efficiency, but also on ethical grounds based on democratic ideals.
