NEPA for the 21st century : linking research to management
MetadataShow full item record
In response to growing concerns around the management and implementation of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), the Pacific Northwest Research Station and Ecosystem Management Coordination in the Washington Office launched the “NEPA for the 21st Century” initiative in 2006. The initiative explored ways for improving how the Forest Service executes NEPA responsibilities. Policy analysts, academics, consultants, and other professionals examined agency NEPA practices to uncover opportunities to improve the processes and outcomes associated with compliance. This research synthesizes the studies, publications, agency learning opportunities, and participants’ perspectives on the initiative.
