"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."--Jacket.
