The Center helps people solve problems, make informed decisions, and craft solutions to natural resource and environmental issues.
We believe the most effective way to do this is through public processes that are well informed and provide meaningful opportunities for all interested citizens, stakeholders, and decision-makers to participate.
Our staff and Senior Fellows are recognized experts in facilitation, mediation, collaboration, and conflict resolution. They are also well known for their work in public lands policy, water law and policy, land-use planning, and cross-boundary resource management. As a team, we:
Inform and invigorate policy discussions by providing timely, decision-relevant research and analysis.
Facilitate and mediate complex, multi-party dialogues on land and water issues.
Build and share knowledge to push the horizons of natural resources and environmental policy and governance.
