Overview of the Program

Environmental and natural resource conflicts are found everywhere. Everywhere and every day, people compete for scarce resources, including access to clean air and water, oil and gas, minerals, timber, farmland, or to preserve habitat for plants and animals. In competition for these resources, people struggle to resolve issues such as how to balance resource exploitation with the need to preserve air and water quality, how to supply water to arid regions while protecting surface and groundwater supplies, or how to permit genetic modification of plants and animals while preserving the integrity of naturally evolved species and ecosystems.

Environmental Mediation workshop is a rigorous, but flexible, process where the parties negotiate hard on the merits and resolve the issues at the core of the conflict and then establish a workable, enforceable framework for implementing agreements for clean-up and/or compensation.

Who Should Attend

This course will entirely and expensively focus on those skills.
