"Risk Perception in the Provision of Aquatic Ecosystem Services"
This is a closed meeting for a funded group of visiting scholars.
We propose to convene a group of diverse scholars with expertise on the biophysical, psychological, socio-economic, health, and regulatory aspects of water quality issues to:
- Develop comparable measures of objective risk signals for HCBs in the Lake Erie and Lake Champlain basins.
- Compile data sources on subjective risks/beliefs to create a dataset of psychological and socio-economic risk signals to integrate with the objective risk database.
- Use systems modeling techniques to test the hypothesis that amplification of subjective risk perceptions may trigger a shift in policy cycle from ineffective to effective; and dampening of subjective risk perceptions may trigger policy cycle to shift from effective to ineffective cycle.
