National HIA Meeting 2013 - Plenary Panel

Policymaker Perspectives on the Field

overview

HIAs seek to inform a wide range of public policy decisions, from legislation to planning and regulatory actions.  This session was a moderated, interactive conversation with three  public officials that have been involved in HIAs—a city council member, a federal agency staff member, and a state legislator. The speakers discussed their experiences with HIAs, and offer perspectives on the value of the information presented, and how HIA practitioners can work most effectively with decision‐makers
