HWCC/CPeace is excited to announce our next capacity building workshop!
Conservation Conflict Transformation: Creating Lasting Solutions for People and Wildlife
11-15 September 2017
To check on space availability, please contact Amy at email@example.com.
HWCC’s 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.
Collaborative 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.
Benefits of Improved Staff Capacity to Analyze and Address Conflict
- Improved stakeholder relations resulting in increased efficiency and sustainability of conservation/management solutions
- Improved ability of agency/organizational personnel to anticipate and address early and quickly any new conflicts or potential conflicts that may arise
- Reduction in negative perceptions of agency/organizations and their actions
- Less resources needing to be diverted to address legal, media and other backlash tactics that may result from unpopular or misconstrued projects/actions
- Increased effectiveness and a higher likelihood of reaching project goals
