Abstract/Summary

Last years have brought a range of pollutant spills affecting natural, industrial, urban and rural areas. To mitigate the effects of pollutants it is necessary to adopt an integrated management of both productive and natural areas. However, to be effective, it is necessary to consider not only the health or biophysical effects of the countermeasures, but the response of the individuals to these changes. The aim of this study is on the assessment of the potential impacts, both social and environmental, derived from the implementation of restoration strategies due to spills. Our approach is based on a choice experiment applied in a context of a citizen's jury in Cumbria (UK) and Zaragoza (Spain). The results highlight the advantages of this participatory techniques vs traditional survey.
