stakeholder is a person or a group with an interest in the
success of an organization, project, or government action. Every group has interests that are unique to them, and every
stakeholder group has a right to be heard. Your
stakeholder “Point of View” statement should describe:
why you are important,
problem of too many deer (or related problems) affects you,
how the possible
solutions affect you personally and maybe affect your
what solutions and
approaches your group would prefer.
Think about these questions:
the solutions “cost” you in any demonstrable way?
What do you have to give up?
the solutions benefit you?
could be done that would make your group more willing to
could the solutions be structured so your group would
prosper as a result?
Could you be harmed by the process
of reducing the deer herd to levels that would protect
our forests? How?
If deer population
is not reduced, could you be so badly harmed that
you might disappear?
