Meeting for Comments on the Draft—During the comment period, the agency usually holds public meetings to collect comments on the draft environmental impact statement. ț Publication of Final Environmental Impact Statement—The agency revises the statement based on comments. A discussion of how the comments were used must be included in the environmental impact statement or as a supplement. Another comment period may follow the issuance of the final environmental impact statement, but usually no additional meetings are held.

Risk communication efforts are constrained when the audience expects a different role from the one the organization is willing to play. For example, if the audience is expecting the organization to partner with them in developing a risk management approach, but the organization attempts to fill a manager role by telling the audience what must be done, both the organization’s credibility and its ability to communicate effectively will suffer. When presented with a role dichotomy, audiences often react with anger, hostility, and a general unwillingness to help manage the risk.
