Subject: Socioeconomic Strategic Plan
The Division of Decision Support, Planning and NEPA (WO-210) is proud to announce the availability of the Socioeconomic Strategic Plan (SSP), which guides the development and use of socioeconomic information and capacity at the Bureau of Land Management (BLM). The overall goal of the Socioeconomics Program is to provide relevant and credible social science information and tools to strengthen the effectiveness of the BLM’s office and programs. The plan was developed by a committee representing Field, State, Center, and Washington Office managers and staff.
The Strategic Plan has three sections:
We extend our thanks to the Field, State, and Washington Office programs who contributed to the creation and review of the plan. In addition, we are grateful to the Resource Advisory Councils and other external stakeholders (e.g., the Wilderness Society; Sublette County, Wyoming Commissioners) who also provided comments.
The Socioeconomics Program has begun implementing several of the strategies and actions included in the SSP. To continue that process, WO staff will work with a steering committee to prioritize additional actions described in Section 3 and develop an annual work plan.
Additional information is available on the BLM’s Socioeconomics Program website at http://www.blm.gov/wo/st/en/prog/planning/social_science.html
