Posted: 3/4/2021

Federal agencies frequently address complex environmental challenges that impact a range of stakeholders. This work requires strong collaboration and problem-solving skills. The John S. McCain III National Center for Environmental Conflict Resolution (National Center), a program of the Morris K. Udall and Stewart L. Udall Foundation (Udall Foundation), offered a free webinar on February 10, 2021, entitled “Environmental Collaboration and Conflict Resolution for Federal Agencies.” This webinar provided an overview of environmental collaboration and conflict resolution processes and approaches for environmental managers, decision makers, scientific experts, and stakeholders who navigate multiparty environmental issues. The National Center’s Director, Brian Manwaring, and Deputy Director, Stephanie Kavanaugh, shared insights into practical collaborative approaches and techniques and an understanding of resources available to Federal personnel.
