Stakeholder Involvement in Options Assessment
Price: $ 40

Public decisions on water resources infrastructure are more readily accepted and often more efficient if the views of stakeholders are taken into account and if alternative courses of action are compared at an early stage. This is referred to as stakeholder involvement in options assessment. In part because of concerns over decision-making on infrastructure, particularly large dams, the World Bank has prepared a sourcebook on these topics entitled Stakeholder Involvement in Options Assessment: Promoting Dialogue in Meeting Water and Energy Needs (World Bank, 2003). The sourcebook outlines the benefits of and motivations for ensuring well-informed public decisions on water resources infrastructure. It includes 10 case studies that illustrate various aspects of strategic and project-level planning in different politico-cultural settings. Case studies refer to three different levels of the decision making process: (1) sector or regional/basin level, (2) project implementation level, and (3) where immediate energy/water needs had to be met while longer term planning was underway.
