Environmental Conflict Resolution: Strategies for Environmental Grantmakers

Environmental Conflict Resolution: Strategies for Environmental Grantmakers

Drawing on its twenty years of experience in the field, as well as on interviews with other environmental grantmakers, the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation has published a guide that outlines the benefits, challenges, choices, and opportunities available within the field of Environmental Conflict Resolution (ECR). Written expressly for funders, Environmental Conflict Resolution: Strategies for Environmental Grantmakers (43 pages, PDF) describes the strategies employed at local, state, and national levels to promote collaborative problem solving and manage disputes; examines the major causes of environmental disputes; and discusses how ECR tools can strengthen environmental management and policy by helping parties in conflict become better negotiators.
