Public Participation and Environmental Justice in Selected Watershed Projects in Georgia and Alabama
MetadataShow full item record
As part of an internship sponsored by the EPA and the Society for Applied Anthropology, selected watershed projects in Georgia and Alabama with some level of EPA involvement and using some form of the "watershed approach" were examined. The ultimate aim of this project was to provide information and guidance on participation issues for those developing and implementing watershed projects. Another important goal was to examine if and how stakeholder identification and outreach is being extended to minority and low-income (environmental justice) communities in watershed projects, with the ultimate goal being to identify obstacles to identification of and outreach to these groups and then to develop strategies to overcome these obstacles.
