TWS Panel Discussion
ROOM: RSCC, D8
Francine Madden, Executive Director of the Center for Conservation Peacebuilding, will provide an overview of Conservation Conflict Transformation (CCT) and the science behind this approach. She will articulate how CCT differs from traditional approaches to stakeholder engagement and conflict resolution. Around the world, conservation conflicts can be detrimental. They may impact not only the conservation of wildlife and natural resources, but also individual livelihoods, community identity and quality of life, local industry, and government functioning. Yet, conflict also can be an opportunity for positive change. Additional panelists will share specific case studies in CCT from the perspective of federal and state governments, conservationists, and landowners. Case studies will range from rangeland management to wolves to monk seals and will cover both marine and terrestrial species.
