    • Public Participation1 • The process by which an organization consults with interested or affected individuals, organizations, and government entities before making a decision. • Two-way communication and collaborative problem solving with the goal of achieving better and more acceptable decisions. • Prevents or minimizes disputes by creating a process for resolving issues before they become polarized. • Other terms sometimes used are “public involvement,” “community involvement,” or “stakeholder involvement.” 1James L. Creighton, Creighton & Creighton: http://web.archive.org/web/20080719171012/http://www.creightonandcreighton.com/whatis.html
    • E-Participation1 • The use of ICT2 for enabling and strengthening citizen participation in democratic decision-making processes. Depending on the aspect of democracy being promoted it can employ different techniques (Trechsel et al, 2002): • For increasing the transparency of the political process; • For enhancing the direct involvement on participation of citizen; • For improving the quality of opinion formation by opening new spaces of information and deliberation 1UNDP Europe & CIS: http://europeandcis.undp.org/files/uploads/ICTD/e-Participation%20Guide%20-%20blurb.doc 2Information and communications technologies
    • IAP2 Framework • International Association for Public Participation (IAP2) • http://www.iap2.org • Core assets: • IAP2 Spectrum of Public Participation • CoreValues for the Practice of Public Participation • Code of Ethics for Public Participation Practitioners
    • IAP2 CoreValues1 • Public participation is based on the belief that those who are affected by a decision have a right to be involved in the decision-making process. • … includes the promise that the public's contribution will influence the decision. • … promotes sustainable decisions by recognizing and communicating the needs and interests of all participants, including decision makers. • … seeks out and facilitates the involvement of those potentially affected by or interested in a decision. • … seeks input from participants in designing how they participate. • … provides participants with the information they need to participate in a meaningful way. • … communicates to participants how their input affected the decision. 1IAP2: http://www.iap2.org/displaycommon.cfm?an=4 2Information and communications technologies

    • Public Participation and Sustainability • Three dimensions of sustainability: economic growth, social equity and ecological integrity • Trade-offs based on local needs and circumstances • Public participation assists decision makers • by contributing essential local knowledge and wisdom to project planning and design • by clarifying the degree to which stakeholders are willing to accept or live with the trade-offs. • in making informed and integrated decisions about the sustainability of a proposed policy, program, project or plan. 1IAP2: http://www.iap2.org/associations/4748/files/IAP2_WSSD_submission.pdf
    • Key Benefits of Public Participation • Builds public understanding, leading to better and more durable decisions • Creates trust in decision-makers and their processes, leading to stable policies and enduring decisions • Builds public ownership and a stronger stake in initiatives leading to participants carrying out their responsibilities during implementation • Creates opportunities for stakeholders to discuss their differences directly, often leading to creative new solutions • Enriches decision-making through a diversity of opinion and the local and traditional knowledge and collective wisdom of a range of stakeholders • Builds “legitimacy” for decisions that allows them to withstand changes in government or company policy and leadership. 1IAP2: http://www.iap2.org/associations/4748/files/IAP2_WSSD_submission.pdf
