This was a group project I completed in Autumn of 2008, for a class on Resolving Social Conflict about environmental issues. My team conducted a stakeholder and conflict analysis covering an Environmental Impact Statement submitted by NiSource Columbia Gas in 2007, which included a request for a 50-year Incidental Take Permit.
This analysis included the interests, frames, goals, and concerns of NiSource, the Ohio EPA, environmentalist groups, local landowners, the US Fish and Wildlife Service, and other state and local agencies. We also addressed the permitting process, as well as legal issues related to the Endangered Species Act and the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). This SlideShare presents our analysis and recommendations for conflict prevention.
