“Funding for Collaboration: Resources and Challenges”

Environmental and natural resource issues are ecologically, politically, culturally, and emotionally complex. Not only do they often cross jurisdictional boundaries, impact diverse stakeholders, and involve multiple institutions; they also typically involve high levels of uncertainty and complicated science. Collaborative efforts that meaningfully engage diverse agencies and stakeholders have considerable potential in Utah and elsewhere as a way for involved parties to work through conflict to identify and implement creative and effective solutions for environmental and natural resource issues. However, funding such efforts is not always easy.

This Dialogue will explore opportunities and challenges for funding collaboration around environmental and natural resource issues. It will include:

  • A panel of experts, who will share advice on funding opportunities and strategies
    • Panelists from the US Institute for Environmental Conflict Resolution (USIECR) and the National Policy Consensus Center (NPCC) have been invited
  • Facilitated small group discussion
  • Resources and tools for funding collaborative processes
  • Networking opportunities

The Dialogue is part of the Utah Program on Collaboration, which includes:
