EPA Administrator Lisa P. Jackson introduces EPA’s International Public Participation Guide, an online toolkit. The Guide will help decision-makers to identify, design, and implement public participation programs that help address the environmental challenges in communities. EPA developed the Guide for use in developing countries, although it has a global application.
Administrator Jackson also discusses the importance of public participation and transparency, that an informed and engaged public is essential to the success of protecting the health of our families, communities, countries and global community.
EPA is conducting workshops around the world to introduce the Guide and share approaches for enhancing public participation in environmental decision-making. This video will be used to introduce these workshops, and will be posted on the Public Participation Guide.
