Ethics and Integrity:Ethical Dilemma Case Study


Dilemma in the Hills: Balancing Development and Environment

The Situation:

As a young assistant collector in a hilly region, I face the challenge of an infrastructure project that entails:
 
Tree felling
 
Potential environmental harm
 
Displacement of local communities
 
Significant economic prospects
 
Political expectations with upcoming elections
 

Potential Courses of Action:

Granting Clearance:
 
Pros: Economic advantages, Alignment with political agendas, Showcasing development
 
Cons: Environmental damage, Displacement without resettlement
 

Rejecting Clearance:

Pros: Environmental safeguarding, Preventing social upheaval, Sustainable focus
 
Cons: Economic opportunities missed, Potential political disagreement
 

Seeking Compromises:

Pros: Balanced approach, Project modifications, Fair resettlement
 
Cons: Delay, Additional costs
 

Consulting Experts:

Pros: Informed decisions, Credibility, Mitigation solutions
 
Cons: Extended timelines, Diverse opinions
 

My Decision:

Choice: Seeking Compromises
 

Why?

Holistic Development: Economic progress + Environmental protection
 
Stakeholder Engagement: A comprehensive approach with everyone's input
 
Ethical Responsibility: Prioritizing both development & responsibility
