Resolving Environmental Conflict Towards Sustainable Community Development Dinary Results as Team Le 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:

Explains a transformative approach to facilitation that can help avoid polarization and litigation over environmental conflicts that too often produce outcomes no one likes. Emphasizes empowering the parties to define the issues and arrive at a settle on their own terms and in their own time by understanding each other's perspectives. Of interest to people involved in such conflicts or who would like to mediate them. No index.

Synopsis:

Protecting our natural resources is no longer a good idea. It is the most important challenge facing all of civilization. Community polarization and a rising rate of litigation often result in dissatisfaction and the creation of enemy camps. And the environment, which is already degraded, usually suffers the most. Conflict resolution is key to dealing with these challenges. Chris Maser presents a forceful explanation of how the transformative approach toward facilitation can be accomplished. Resolving Environmental Conflict clearly shows participants how to empower themselves, define the issues at hand, and settle the situation on their own terms and time schedule. All this can be accomplished when the participants understand one another's positions and perspectives. Solutions are attainable, as long as those involved share a truly sustainable vision of the community toward which to build.

Synopsis:

Examination of notions of development; complete coverage of sustainability; explores community concepts; develops the synergism of ecology, culture and economic needs; promotes a healthy environment, enriching the lives of all inhabitants.
