Collaboration, Communication and Facilitation: How Good Process Propels Large Landscape Partnerships Forward

Thursday, October 23, 2014: 10:20 AM-11:50 AM
Oceanic B (Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center)
Successful efforts to conserve large landscapes require meetings, many meetings.  Ensuring the “right” people are at the table, working collaboratively, is a key to success.  Particularly challenging for conserving large landscapes is the large number of stakeholders that need to be engaged to build shared commitments and actions.  In order to address this challenge, some efforts are systematically using facilitators, mediators, and designers of collaborative governance mechanisms to deliver results.  This session will explore how good process is designed, managed, and facilitated, using the Crown of the Continent, the Chesapeake, and other landscapes as examples.
