Abstract or Summary
  • This paper explores the contributions of social capital, social connections, and stakeholder engagement to the goals of ecosystem-based management in a local scale marine planning process. The body of work presented here, through a journal article and report, uses the lens of social capital to evaluate stakeholder engagement in making recommendations for marine reserves through a community team process. In 2010, stakeholders were convened through a community team process to make recommendations for three potential marine reserves in Oregon. In 2012, Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife contracted with Oregon State University to conduct a rapid evaluation of the stakeholders engaged in that process. Stakeholders on each community team (CT) were surveyed using a web-based questionnaire; 70 (n=70) out of 96 participated in the rapid evaluation. The evaluation report assessed aspects of marine governance, including decision-making, meeting management, and team formation and makes recommendations to improve future processes. Data gathered through the survey was then reviewed using a social capital framework to explore the research question: how does social capital enhance or detract from the goals of marine ecosystem based management (MEBM) in local level marine planning processes? Results indicated that connectivity was enhanced during the CT process. Due to the dualistic nature of social capital, information sharing was both enhanced and detracted during the CT process. Respondents’ comments regarding power dynamics, through the operation of linking capital, between the CTs, nongovernmental organizations, and state entities are discussed relative to the influence these dynamics had on marine reserves planning overall and on the CT process in Oregon.
