Sustainable Community Development #3: Resolving Environmental Conflicts, Second Edition Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

One of the most important challenges facing civilization is how its natural resources will be used and protected. Too often polarization and litigation cause results with which no one is truly satisfied. Enemies are made, lines are drawn and both people and the environment are degraded.

Resolving Environmental Conflict explains the transformative approach toward facilitation. It shows how to help parties empower themselves to define the issues and decide the settlement on their own terms and on their own time through better understanding of one another's perspectives.

The transformative approach allows a conflict's outcome to be decided solely by the participants even though resolution may not take place for some months after facilitation is complete. Inherent in the solution is a shared vision for the community without which sustainability is not possible.

Beyond shared vision, this book examines notions of development, sustainability, and community and the synergism of ecology, culture and economic needs that promote a healthy environment enriching the lives of all its inhabitants.

Book News Annotation:

Veteran biologists and ecologists Maser and Pollio, now with the US Fish and Wildlife Service, show the interplay between scientific knowledge and human values that is necessary to resolve environmental conflicts and leave coming generations what the living owe them. Among their perspectives are approaches to mediation, biophysical and social principles of sustainability, the human equation, the process is the decision, practicing the mediation of conscience, and modifying our belief systems regarding change.

Synopsis:

The second edition of this popular reference covers the basic transformative concepts that are vital for resolving environmental conflicts. This updated edition includes discussions on the inviolate biophysical principles, how the English language is changing, as well as the critical principles of social behavior. It considers new dynamics in making decisions along with the effects of the younger generations shifting their interests from nature-oriented interest to technologically-oriented interests and their subsequent lack of understanding the importance of the natural environment to a sustainable society.
