The social sciences are a valuable but often overlooked element of coastal zone management. Issues from marsh restoration to flood mitigation all involve critical human elements— knowledge, values, and attitudes—of the people that live, work, and play in these areas. This training provides the basic knowledge and skills to help coastal managers understand their stakeholders.

Hosts of this training can customize their workshop by selecting one or more of the following social science modules that focus on various disciplines, including understanding stakeholder basics, interviewing for data collection, conducting focus groups, and writing survey questions.
