The National Research Council has issued a report that explores the benefits and downsides to public participation in environmental policy-making, concluding that “when done well, public participation improves the quality and legitimacy” of the decision-making process. But it also cautions that done poorly, public participation “has done more harm than good.” (9/4/08)
