Natural resource negotiations often focus on decisions about public resources use and involve public employees, who need to know how to effectively represent their agencies in the negotiation process. To enhance these skills, FORT social scientists conduct research-based courses in basic and advanced negotiations for natural resource professionals. The Basic Negotiation Course held April 3-5th in Fort Collins, CO, was filled to capacity with 24 participants representing the Bureau of Reclamation (11), National Park Service (1), U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (2), USDA-NRCS (1), the Osage Nation (2), and various state conservation agencies (7). The Basic Course will be taught again May 22-24 and has a waiting list. The Advanced Course is available September 18-20 in Fort Collins for those who have completed the basic training.
