Revealing the Role of Local Stakeholders in Landscape Conservation Design: A Social Science Inquiry

April 12, 2017 - 11:00am to 12:00pm

What is the role of local stakeholders and social data in the Landscape Conservation Design (LCD) process? How can information on local stakeholder and social data be used to increase the efficacy and utilization of LCDs by conservation organizations? Research currently being conducted by Dr. Daniel Decker and doctoral candidate Catherine Doyle-Capitman of the Human Dimensions Research Unit at Cornell University seeks to understand these and other questions. Key to this inquiry is identifying and understanding local-scale organizations, agencies, and individuals who are both interested in resource management and who have the power to bolster or impede implementation of conservation-promoting management actions. Join us to find out about mid-study theories, findings and future direction related to engaging local stakeholders and considering social data related to these stakeholders’ interests, values, and knowledge during LCD development.
