Putting People into the Picture

Putting People into the Picture

One of the key takeaways of this RiverTalk starring Dr Vanessa Vargas, was the importance of building trust with stakeholders by co-designing report cards, and how stewardship and citizen science could be incorporated as a cultural or social indicator.

Report cards are popular tools originally used in assessing and communicating ecosystem health conditions, but there is a growing number that incorporates socio-cultural and economic values that are important to stakeholders. Report cards have evolved from a product created to increase awareness and education about environmental issues, to a process that engages stakeholders to help address sustainability challenges. In this RiverTalk, we explored how socio-environmental report cards can benefit both nature and people through stakeholder collaboration and adaptive environmental governance.
