The first step toward shaping effective policy for people and nature is usually to conduct a situation assessment. Situation Assessments summarize what we hear from a series of interviews with diverse stakeholders. They are not an exhaustive study, nor an end in themselves. Some interests and opinions may not be represented. Moreover, we are reporting what people said, and some factual inaccuracies may be present.
