New publication on stakeholder engagement in environmental modeling: understanding the nexus of academic science and decision-making

Integrating stakeholder perspectives is increasingly important in environmental science as a growing number of research projects are justified with a “solutions” orientation prioritizing societal relevance. Dr. Jennie Stephens, Clark ES&P Alum and Washington State University-based graduate student Liz Allen and co-authors Chad Kruger and Fok-Yan Leung examine perceptions of project goals and attitudes about stakeholder engagement among a team of researchers who are addressing water supply and nutrient cycling in the context of climate change in the Columbia River Basin.  A paper on this research has been published in the Journal of Environmental Studies and Sciences, and is publicly available (open access) here:  http://link.springer.com/article/10.1007%2Fs13412-013-0136-x
