HWCC’s collaborative learning process addresses the theory, principles and practice of transforming complex conservation conflicts. Participants draw on best practices from the multiple disciplines that inform our conservation conflict transformation work, 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 designing and leading 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 durable conservation solutions.
Collaborative, experiential learning and peer-to-peer consulting among all participants are hallmarks of the HWCC approach and ensures a rich workshop experience and a unique post-course professional network. The course is led by Francine Madden, a 20 year CCT practitioner, from the Human-Wildlife Conflict Collaboration and is based on an interdisciplinary and multi-sectoral approach to Conservation Conflict Transformation (CCT).
