"Large-scale Natural Resource Conservation & Restoration: Issues of Governance" Foundation meeting
This is a closed meeting for a funded synthesis group of visiting scholars.
The Principal Investigators of this project will convene three workshops focused on issues of governance. The first will explore the concept of network governance, relevant typologies, and existing and needed research on evaluating and integrating socioeconomic, ecological, and political legitimacy outcomes of collaborative, cross-jurisdictional governance models. A second workshop will focus on network governance models as boundary organizations and processes that link scientists, stakeholders, and decision makers. It will also examine how one maps and comprehends patterns of cross-sector, large-scale coordination, and social networks and their relationship to ecological systems. A third workshop will examine the role of social capital in sustaining network governance, and explore how processes and governance design affect the building of social capital.
