Community consultation in environmental policy making

13 Aug 2002
Description

Lyn Carson, Stuart White, Carolyn Hendriks and Jane Palmer report on a consultation experiment they conducted confirming community support for container deposit legislation in NSW. They claim that the greater the level of deliberation, the more confident policy makers can be in the results of community consultation. Further, some consultation methods are more likely than others to stimulate creative resolution of complex environmental issues and can certainly add value to the policy making process, especially when policies are contentious and value-laden.
