Washington, DC

HWCCs collaborative learning process addresses the theory, principles and practice of transforming complex conservation conflicts. Participants draw on best practices from both conservation and identity-based (deep-rooted) conflict resolution, and as such will improve their capacity to analyze complex conflict dynamics, anticipate and address conflicts as they arise, and address long-standing conflicts that may impede new progress. By accurately analyzing conflicts and facilitating appropriate processes for addressing them, professionals can determine root causes, build a foundation for trust and respect among stakeholders, and unearth fertile ground for sowing and cultivating sustainable conservation solutions.

Training in CACollaborative learning and peer-to-peer consulting among all participants are hallmarks of the HWCC approach and ensures a rich classroom experience and a unique post-course professional network. The courses are led by conflict prevention and reconciliation professionals from the Human-Wildlife Conflict Collaboration and are based on an interdisciplinary and multi-sectoral approach to conservation conflict resolution.
