Land Use & Natural Resources

The human population is growing at an unprecedented pace, demands on natural resources are ever-increasing, and the implications of climate change are yet to be fully understood. These dynamics impact natural resources and land use planning as well as management and policy development efforts, creating complicated and often controversial public involvement, consensus-building and decisionmaking scenarios.

Now more than ever, it is critical to design processes that effectively bring together diverse stakeholders to develop mutually satisfying results around complex science- and policy-related land management, growth, and natural resource management issues and solutions.
