For this Assignment, choose a discreet environmental policy issue that you are interested in, such as climate change, forest management, or air-quality regulations. Write a 3−5 page paper defining the roles and expectations that scientists and two other experts (such as elected officials, non-governmental stakeholders, or economists) play in this area, illustrating issues of power, the potential (realized or not) of science in the policy-making process, and the barriers and incentives to collaborative outcomes among experts.
Be sure to:
Identify the influences on the experts (such as values, interests, positions, and external forces).
Discuss how these influences impact the experts’ contributions to environmental collaborative processes and ultimately the outcomes of those processes.
Consider the degrees and types of interactions among the science and policy experts in framing and implementing environmental policies.
Predict how those elements affect long term implications of a policy.
