What is the best way to effectively identify and notify the public concerned about proposed activities affecting the environment? Are countries providing early public participation when all options, including the "zero" option (doing nothing), are genuinely open? Is it right if at public hearings the audience consists of a large group of men in suits with no elderly persons or women? How can Aarhus principles help peacebuilding in Myanmar and China? What are the obstacles to effective public participation in national climate change-related decision-making on the way to the Paris agreement?. These were some of the questions discussed at a meeting of the Task Force on Public Participation in Decision-making under the Convention on Access to Information, Public Participation in Decision-making and Access to Justice in Environmental Matters (Aarhus Convention), held in Geneva on 23 and 24 February 2015 under the leadership of Italy.

Applications are reviewed by peer review program staff and evaluated in the following areas: advocacy (not applicable to military personnel on active duty), interest in science, communication skills, and participatory skills (click here for link to How You Are Evaluated ). The final step involves a brief telephone interview to ascertain a nominees understanding of the peer review process, ability to speak and answer questions comfortably, and willingness to serve as a consumer reviewer. Once these steps are completed, interested consumers are scheduled for specific meeting dates. If more eligible consumers are identified than the program requires for that fiscal year, a selection of those eligible to serve is made based on several factors to best fill available positions and ensure representation of the community. Eligible consumers who are not selected are placed in a network of eligible candidates and may be selected to serve in the future ...

The Alliance for Rural Democracy welcomes the judgement handed down by the Constitutional Court yesterday declaring the Restitution of Land Rights Amendment Act 15 of 2014 invalid.. The case, brought by civil society and community-based organisations including affiliates of the ARD, concerned Parliaments obligation to facilitate public participation in its legislative process. In finding that the National Council of Provinces had failed to allow enough time for proper consultation on this Amendment Act, the Court said:. "Given the gravitas of the legislation and the thoroughgoing public participation process that it warranted, the truncated timeline was inherently unreasonable. Objectively, on the terms stipulated by the timeline, it was simply impossible for the NCOP - and by extension the Provincial Legislatures - to afford the public a meaningful opportunity to participate.". The Court ordered that all claims lodged after 1 July 2014 should be put on hold until earlier claims are settled. ...
The second pillar of the Aarhus Convention is based on the concept of participation and draws from Principle 10 of the Rio Declaration:
Once a project is put on the Union list, it is dubbed crucial for the EUs energy policy. Giving projects such priority status is hoped to stop any discussions about their necessity during the permit granting process before they even start. As part of the efforts to speed up permitting procedures, the Infrastructure Regulation also provides particular rules for public participation.. First, the member states (or rather, their competent authorities) draw up a manual of procedures. This must contain information about the applicable law, the necessary decisions and opinions, the contact details of the competent authorities etc. In the interest of increased transparency, project promoters must hand in a concept for public participation at the beginning of the permit granting process. Before the final and complete application file is handed in, a public consultation must take place.

COLUMBIA - Ron Sena of Charleston saw his first electronic cigarette while on a cruise with his wife.. A smoker for 40 years, Sena was aware of the regulations surrounding smoking in restaurants, so he was surprised when a man pulled out what looked to be a cigarette in the dining room.. "Hey, guy, you cant smoke in here," he remembers saying. He was intrigued by the answer he got: Its water vapor, not smoke.. Thats when Senas interest in e-cigarettes was sparked, and he isnt alone.. E-cigarettes broke onto the American market in 2007, and the market has grown every year since. Sales are expected to hit $1 billion in 2013, according to Euromonitor.. Sena said that since quitting traditional smoking and picking up the electronic version, his lung function and senses of taste and smell have improved dramatically.. He felt so strongly about the health benefits of the products that he started his own business making refill cartridges for the devices.. Many people feel the way Sena does about ...

California has a unique variant of anti-SLAPP legislation. In 1992 California enacted Code of Civil Procedure § 425.16, a statute intended to frustrate SLAPPs by providing a quick and inexpensive defense.[6] It provides for a special motion that a defendant can file at the outset of a lawsuit to strike a complaint when it arises from conduct that falls within the rights of petition or free speech. The statute expressly applies to any writing or speech made in connection with an issue under consideration or review by a legislative, executive, or judicial proceeding, or any other official proceeding authorized by law, but there is no requirement that the writing or speech be promulgated directly to the official body. It also applies to speech in a public forum about an issue of public interest and to any other petition or speech conduct about an issue of public interest. To win on an anti-SLAPP (special motion to strike) motion, the defendant in the alleged SLAPP action must first show that the ...

Background: Maternal and neonatal mortality rate are still high in many developing countries. Lack of access to health facilities is one of the biggest challenges in the poorest households and in rural areas which contributes to high maternal and neonatal mortality. One strategy to improve health services utilization amongst the poorest and rural areas is by incorporating community participation into maternal and neonatal health programmes. Indonesia is one of the countries which make intensive efforts to reduce maternal and neonatal mortality using community participation strategy. Objectives: To identify the effectiveness of community participation strategies to reduce maternal and neonatal mortality and discuss the relevance of global experiences within the Indonesian context. Method: A systematic review. The relevant studies were searched electronically through two databases; Pub-Med and ISI Web of Knowledge. Pre-defined selection criteria applied to the filtered studies. The references of ...

Leaving dog waste on the ground can cause more than messy shoes and dirty looks from your neighbors. It also has a negative impact when rain washes it into our waterways and becomes harmful to your health and your pets health, too! Pet waste contains three times more bacteria than human waste. When it rains, residue and bacteria from the waste is washed into our local waterways where it can cause diseases in humans and animals. Richland County offers free pet waste stations for neighborhoods who enroll in the Trash the Poop program. For more information visit www.trashthepoop.com.. Richland County is also a part of the Richland Countywide Stormwater Consortium (RCSC), a collective of over 20 groups working together to keep stormwater clean around the county.

Findings show that using community participation can lead to designing new service models that fit within existing budgets and address local aspirations and healthcare priorities.. Participant communities were similar on dimensions of rurality, health status, aspirations and health priorities. They proposed a consistent set of requirements for remote Scottish primary healthcare. These were: resident practitioner(s), expert emergency triage, monitoring and anticipatory care of vulnerable people, community volunteering for health improvement, and leadership of community (health) volunteering.. Despite community similarities, community participation led to different service designs for three communities and one community did not participate at the final service design stage. These diverse outcomes suggest the influence of local contextual factors. This implies that different communities do want different things so suggesting the same standard model for all, apparently alike, rural communities is ...

There is abundant material in the full report and its summaries that calls for public input into the process of determining exactly what types of germline gene editing should be permitted. For example, from the one-page report summary: "Ongoing reassessment and public participation should precede any clinical trials of heritable germline editing". This is a very clear call for public feedback. Nevertheless, at least some responses seem to argue that this sentiment was left out of the report. I believe this to be purposefully misleading. The report committee was co-chaired by a noted biomedical ethicist and regulatory expert. Moreover, the committee has several additional bioethicists in its roster, who all are well acquainted with the need for communication between the public, scientists and policymakers in order for sensible policies to be created. Furthermore - the report contains an entire chapter entitled "Public engagement". ! ...

June 21, 2004. When the National Council on Disability (NCD) invited public participation in the Native American Forum (Native Forum) held April 15, 2004 at the Santa Ana Pueblo Hyatt Regency Tamaya Hotel and Resort near Bernalillo, New Mexico, the purpose was to provide a dialogue opportunity for learning about issues and concerns linked to federal policy. In his delivery of the charge to forum discussion groups, NCDs Cultural Diversity Advisory Committee Liaison, Milton Aponte indicated that the Native Forum was less about one size fits all solutions and "more about trying to obtain authentic perspectives from [the participants]." NCD wanted to learn directly from people with disabilities, their families, other advocates, tribal and state leaders, service providers and other disability professionals..

Background. With mounting global environmental, social and economic pressures the resilience and stability of forests and thus the provisioning of vital ecosystem services is increasingly threatened. Intensified monitoring can help to detect ecological threats and changes earlier, but monitoring resources are limited. Participatory forest monitoring with the help of "citizen scientists" can provide additional resources for forest monitoring and at the same time help to communicate with stakeholders and the general public. Examples for citizen science projects in the forestry domain can be found but a solid, applicable larger framework to utilise public participation in the area of forest monitoring seems to be lacking. We propose that a better understanding of shared and related topics in citizen science and forest monitoring might be a first step towards such a framework.. Methods. We conduct a systematic meta-analysis of 1015 publication abstracts addressing "forest monitoring" and "citizen ...
In the late 20th and early 21st centuries, concern grew among scientists, clinicians, and public policymakers regarding the direction of clinical research. Over the previous five decades, the scientific community had benefited from significant progress in the realm of basic science research, backed by the publics long-term investment in it. The concern over clinical research stemmed from the idea that scientific discoveries of these past generations were not being appropriately translated. This was addressed with numerous targeted initiatives, including the Clinical Research Roundtable at the Institute of Medicine in June 2000. This initiative identified four major challenges to the progress of clinical research: (1) enhancing public participation in clinical research, (2) funding, (3) an adequately trained workforce, and (4) developing information systems (1). The last challenge mentioned, and the focus of this section, highlights the idea that the use of information technology (IT) and ...
The experiences of cross-border cooperation (CBC), undertaken not only in Europe but throughout the world, have enabled areas to gain greater importance in recent decades at an international level, showing potential for integrative functions and joint development as exemplified by several CBC projects. The present paper assesses the impact of CBC projects by analyzing a protocol established in 2013 between the cities of Elvas and Badajoz, which induced the creation of the Eurocity Elvas-Badajoz. The paper kicks off with a critical review on territorial factors for success in CBC areas, considering the analysis of several case studies throughout Europe. The lessons learned, taken from the analyzed case studies, and the identified territorial success factors were used as assessment points for the investigation of the target study area, the Eurocity ElvasBadajoz. The investigation explores public participation perceptions towards the identification of what changes with respect to standards of life with the

Systematic reviews of health effectiveness have traditionally been undertaken by teams of topic experts, primarily clinicians or health researchers. Nearly 10 years ago, the involvement of service users and carers was referred to as a phenomenon emerging out of the shadows1 which was relatively underdeveloped. Recent research confirms that user involvement remains relatively rare, with few organisations engaging consumers.2. In the field of community development, patient and public involvement (PPI) is not new. In the UK, for example, national legislation has reflected an increasing policy drive to involve patients, service users and carers in health research.3 ,4 PPI is regarded as an umbrella term, used to refer to a variety of stakeholders or end users/recipients/beneficiaries of research and means working with patients and the public as members of the research team.. Three rationales for PPI in designing primary health research have been put forward in the literature. First, PPI is ...

These provisions lay a people-centred foundation upon which South African environmental law is constructed.78 The Constitution is the ultimate source of all environmental rights in South Africa.79 In addition, commentators have pointed out that a constitutionally entrenched environmental right can provide a "safety net" when existing laws or policies are inadequate to address given environmental problems, and can inhibit economic programmes that are detrimental to the environment, and, by providing procedural environmental rights, should promote greater public participation in the interpreting and enforcing of substantive environmental rights.80. The Constitution provides that the environment and nature conservation are areas of concurrent national and provincial legislative competence.81 National parks constitute an exception insofar as the provinces have no legislative competence in respect of them.

Another remedy may be available to plaintiffs in states with Anti Strategic Lawsuits Against Public Participation (Anti-SLAPP) statutes, such as the District of Columbia and California. While these lawsuits vary somewhat in their scope and in the remedies available thereunder, D.C.s Anti-SLAPP statute, D.C. Code § 16-5501 et seq. provides that "[a] party may file a special motion to dismiss any claim arising from an act in furtherance of the right of advocacy on issues of public interest within 45 days after service of the claim." See also, e.g., Cal. Civ. Proc. § 425.16 (Californias Anti-SLAPP statute). This "special motion to dismiss" is intended to prevent the assertion of claims or counterclaim "without substantial merit brought against individuals or groups with the intention of silencing the opponents, or at least diverting their resources." See Kathryn W. Tate, Californias Anti-SLAPP Legislation: A Summary of and Commentary on Its Operation and Scope, 33 Loy. L.A. L. Rev. 801, 802-03 ...

Linux FCS IBM, the first and biggest IT vendor to champion Linux, has been gently rebuked for initially tolerating the community to further its own interests.. And IBM was forced to concede.. IBM was identified during a Linux Foundation conference debate on community participation as emblematic of big companies whove made the mistake of joining the efforts around Linux to further their own goals first, and to help development of the kernel second.. James Bottomley, Novell distinguished engineer, kernel maintainer, and chairman of the Foundations technical advisory board, said IBM initially approached Linux with the belief it had key technologies that should be in Linux, and pushed them upstream into the kernel.. These technologies, he said, first benefited IBM and only secondarily benefited the kernel.. "They broke down the technology into elements that would benefit IBM," Bottomley said.. He did not identify the technologies involved, but IBM engineers and expertise have been poured into ...
Downloadable (with restrictions)! Improving public involvement in health system decision making stands as a primary health policy goal. However, still limited guidance is available on how best to elicit preferences for health care programmes. This study examines a contingent choice technique to elicit preferences among health programmes, and named willingness to assign (WTAS). WTAS reveals relative (monetary-based) values of a set of competing public programmes under a hypothetical healthcare budget assessment. Experimental evidence is reported from a deliberative empirical study valuing ten health programmes in the context of the Catalan Health Service. Evidence from this experimental study reveals that within the context of multiple programmes, preferences are internally more consistent and slightly less affected by preference reversals as compared to values revealed from an adapted technique eliciting the willingness to pay (WTP) extra taxes. Another finding suggests that although programmes

In Europe many patients infected with HIV remain undiagnosed, although this percentage varies between 15-80% across the continent. In the UK it is estimated to be 27%. Undiagnosed HIV results in increased morbidity and mortality and reduced treatment response, as appropriate health interventions are delayed. It also has adverse public health implications, with those individuals unaware of their HIV status being more likely to transmit the virus.. An important public health issue is how to diagnose more individuals with HIV earlier in the course of their infection. In the US, the Centre for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has introduced testing guidelines whereby all individuals are tested, unless they object, at any point of contact with the healthcare system - the opt-out testing guidelines.. At the HIV in Europe Conference held in November 2007, the consensus, which included patient and public involvement, was that such an approach would not be suitable for Europe. The Conference ...

It also has adverse public health implications, with those individuals unaware of their HIV status being more likely to transmit the virus.. An important public health issue is how to diagnose more individuals with HIV earlier in the course of their infection. In the US, the Centre for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has introduced testing guidelines whereby all individuals are tested, unless they object, at any point of contact with the healthcare system - the opt-out testing guidelines.. At the HIV in Europe Conference held in November 2007, the consensus, which included patient and public involvement, was that such an approach would not be suitable for Europe. The Conference ...
The Legislature. Under the draft there will be a bicameral legislature consisting of a National Assembly and a Senate. Both will be elective bodies [there will be no appointed members] and in each House half the members will be elected on a constituency basis and half by a system of proportional representation. This will ensure close contact with local electorates and adequate representation of smaller parties.. Primary legislative power will vest in the National Assembly; the Senate will not have power to initiate legislation but will be confined to checking, scrutinising and amending Bills passed by the National Assembly.. Parliament will be elected for a fixed five-year term, and each House will determine when and for how long it sits. In this important respect, therefore, Parliament will be independent of the Executive.. Both Houses of Parliament will be obliged to conduct their business openly and to facilitate public involvement in their legislative processes. The enactment of subsidiary ...
Caroline Levines Provoking Democracy gives an extremely compelling account of how Anglo-American law has, in counterintuitive ways, supported "avant garde" art, and why Anglo-American democracies depend, in turn, upon such art, which provides a dissident voice that pluralism and an orientation towards the future demand. Covering a broad range of topics, from public involvement in decisions about whether particular pieces of art should be displayed, to the operations of the House Un-American Activities Committee during the Cold War, to the role of originality in judicial determinations of what counts as art, Levines book furnishes ingenious readings of the dynamic interplay between particular figures and events. In the course of reading Provoking Democracy, one is shocked at how the CIA secretly funded the work of Abstract Expressionist painter Jackson Pollock to promote the ideal of American freedom internationally at the same time as American publics and media reviled his painting, but one ...
Nineteen sportsmens groups wrote Congress in support of Planning 2.0 revisions that created three additional opportunities for the public and key collaborators-like state and local governments-to be involved at the front-end of the land-use planning process. These additional steps were designed to increase agency transparency and public involvement, and these benefits are still sorely needed to boost overall satisfaction with the management of BLM public lands across the country.. "It is tragic to see so much hard work and public input go to waste, only to be replaced with uncertainty," says Steven Williams, president of the Wildlife Management Institute. "Meanwhile, the agency will continue to struggle in using an outdated, ineffective planning process to deal with modern-day challenges on public lands.". Consideration for big game migration corridors and other planning tools that account for the most recent scientific data are not written into the previous land-use planning rule, established ...

The provision of information and the importance of keeping families informed is frequently viewed as a significant factor within both the concept of empowerment and the facilitation of enabling and participatory processes for service users and their families. This article looks at how parents would like to receive this information and also discusses the empowering potential of user-friendly information. The article draws on data collected from a focus group discussions with parents caring for children with a range of disabilities or chronic illness. In particular it examines the criteria by which parents judge the quality of information and their ideas as to what constitutes good practice, especially in terms of how information is presented, its content and the way it is delivered. Using these ideas and criteria, the paper begins to develop a model of good information practice that is both three-dimensional and personally interactive. ...
By Henry Sanoff. Community design stands for an alternative style of practice, based on the idea that professional technical knowledge is often inadequate in the resolution of social problems. It is an umbrella term covering community planning, community architecture, social architecture, community development and community participation, all of which emphasize the involvement of local people in the social and physical development of the environment in which they live. Community design represents the addition of moral and political content to professional practice, however, the representation of these ideas has changed over four decades of practice. Today, Community Design Centers (CDC) are too often left dealing with small-scale solutions to issues of poverty and disadvantage while affluent groups use citizen participation techniques, many developed in the community design movement, to secure their own advantaged positions. The community design movement now faces a new challenge: to create a ...
The acceptance of multiplicity as the precondition of political action is central to the new generation of theorists and activists that the author designates as critical pluralists. In political and social theory, a range of authors has finally begun to respond to a lament broached by Mary Parker Follett in 1918: pluralists early in the century had acknowledged difference, she noted, but they had not arrived at the heart of the question - what is to be done with this diversity? This chapter examines some of the contemporary responses to Folletts question and constructs a list of practices necessary to build political relations across difference. These get at issues of justice beyond the material, concerning both recognition and participatory process, and it is argued that agonistic respect (William Connolly 1991), attempts at intersubjective understanding (Seyla Benhabib 1992; Jurgen Habermas 1970; Axel Honneth 1992), inclusive, open discourse free from domination and the possibility of reprisals
IT is a question that occurs to almost everyone who becomes seriously ill: Should you go to your local hospital or would you do better if you went to a major medical center? It may mean a long trip when you are ill and it will almost certainly mean seeing doctors who are strangers to you. But what if going to a major medical center makes the difference between life and death? Patients reach different conclusions, based often on gut feelings about a doctor or a hospital. And medical researchers, looking for data, say they are not always certain themselves about how to decide. |p| There really is very, very little information, says Dr. Elliott S. Fisher, a professor at Dartmouth Medical School in Hanover, N.H., who studies medical outcomes. Its the great weakness of all the efforts to foster consumer engagement in health care decision making. |p|

Older adulthood is a time when we can explore work experiences that match the things we enjoy doing!

I have observed Purnima Sreenivasan in both the in-patient and out-patient setting and watched the results of her efforts first-hand with my mother. When mom broke her hip three years ago, Purnima Sreenivasan was instrumental in working with the orthopedic surgeon and the physical therapy group to help restore moms ability to walk, one of her favorite pastimes. From a fall and fracture that contributes to mortality for over 35% of patients (over 80 years old) in one year, and reduces mobility for over 65%, she helped mom back to walking three miles a day unassisted, a nearly unheard of result. Purnima Sreenivasan is a warm, engaging individual ...

The aim of this paper is to investigate the views about community on their participation during disaster recovery and how they can be empowered. The community participation from the beginning to end of the project, and future maintenance of the community is essential for a successful recovery in an efficient and effective manner. Little, or token, participation by the community has proved to be fatal through schedule delays in recovery or public uprising. This article will outline a global literature review of community participation complemented with some interview preliminary data from San Francisco and Christ Church, New Zealand. The outcome is a framework of community participation and empowerment. As "owners", the community will ensure a well- maintained community for many years ahead.. ...
Community development is a big part of life at Eclipse. It is strongly recommended that you identify somebody on your team to be responsible for community development activities. To cultivate a vibrant community of users, adopters, and committers, a project has to have somebody who is responsible for community development. Somebody has to own it. Everybody on the project team has to dedicate some significant amount of their time to community development, but one person on the team has to be responsible for it. For some projects, this may be a full time job; for others, it may be a huge part of one. In fact, may open source projects have more than one full time person working on community development. In some circles, this role might be called the projects evangelist, or maybe its the project lead that manages community development. Whatever the title, the role should be that of making everybody else successful in community development activities. Please see Community Development for Eclipse ...
