Join EPA for a webcast on May 1, 2013, from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. Eastern time on using social indicators in watershed-management projects.

Working with landowners and managers to find effective and practical solutions to water-quality problems is crucial to achieving environmental goals. Using social indicators can help resource managers and conservation professionals understand target audiences, select effective interventions, and evaluate their impacts. Social indicators provide information about the social context, awareness, attitudes, capacities, constraints, and behaviors in a watershed or project area.

At the end of this webcast, participants will understand some basic concepts of behavior change and have the tools to use a framework for using social indicators in nonpoint source management work.
