What Is It?


"Collaborative and community-based approaches to natural resources management are ... manifested in the increasing numbers of partnerships, consensus groups, community-based collaboratives, watershed councils, and similar groups ... collaborative conservation draws upon theories of democracy, international development, and alternative dispute resolution." -- Alex Conley and Ann Moote, Udall Center for Studies in Public Policy, University of Arizona
