Todd Jarvis, Oregon State University, in Ground Water 2012. He and his fellow professors offer multiple training sessions each year to interested participants. In a consensus-building effort was convened by the , Susskind facilitated meetings of the Ministers of Environment from all over Central and Eastern Europe in an effort to help them harmonize environmental regulations. The documentation of the, still ongoing, development process of suitable assessment procedures in the given case describes their methodological embedding and conclusions drawn for the heterogeneous situation of water-related settings in this transboundary watershed. Water is the resource that will determine the wealth, welfare, and stability of many countries in the twenty-first century. In 1993, Susskind created the Consensus Building Institute. This dependence has become more critical as a result of extensive use of this provisioning service of nature.
The Practice of Water Diplomacy in a Nutshell. They show how new thinking about water conflict can replace the zero-sum battles that pit experts, politicians, and stakeholders against each other in counter-productive ways.

Planning in a Multicultural Setting. The authors show how open and constantly changing water networks can be managed successfully using collaborative adaptive techniques to build informed agreements among disciplinary experts, water users with conflicting interests, and governmental bodies with countervailing claims. An important question is how these tensions can be diffused peacefully and in a timely manner? Thus, all over the world we see tensions developing between various stakeholders of different water uses. Addressing Complex Water Management Problems.
Now, water quantity is the issue that is at center stage. Since the early 1970s, he has helped to train thousands of negotiators and mediators in the public and private sectors and to promote the use of mediation to resolve facility siting, regulatory, community development, and environmental protection disputes. Illustrative of this is also that in the main text of the book explicit theorisation of 'social power' or 'social relations of power' is hardly found, notwithstanding the centrality of 'politics' in the overall approach. Susskind is Ford Professor of Urban and Environmental Planning at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Since nations are sovereign, all multilateral agreements must be reached through a process of diplomatic negotiation. His expertise in these areas of study allow him to offer innovative information to the public that would not normally have access to his teachings. This book offers a new approach to managing water that will overcome the conflicts that emerge when the interactions among natural, societal, and political forces are overlooked.
Fuller, Michéle Ferenz, David Fairman , International Negotiation Journal, 8 2 , 235-266. It also means that they should employ a range of group problem-solving and deliberative techniques including conflict assessment and joint fact finding that add political legitimacy to efforts to supplement the usual means of democratic decision-making. It is one of the very first efforts to rethink existing reductionist approaches to water across the boundaries of the natural and social sciences by putting the notion of 'complexity' centre-stage, particularly the ontological complexity of water resource processes their non-linearity and unpredictability , and the societal complexity of the contested management and governance of water resources, requiring an adaptive and non zero sum negotiation-based approach in networks. A Non-Zero Sum Approach to Water Negotiations From Competition to Value Creation. This fable establishes the foundation for the rest of the book, as the authors routinely return to it during the course of their journey in constructing their narrative. He is the Director of the Water Diplomacy Initiative.
Solutions will only emerge if a negotiated or diplomatic approach that blends science, policy, and politics is used to manage water networks. Their volume not only presents the key elements of a theory of water diplomacy; it includes excerpts and commentary from more than two dozen seminal readings as well as practice exercises that challenge readers to apply what they have learned. Journal of Architecture and Planning Research, Volume 16, Number 2, Summer 1999. Available from the Program On Negotiation at.

The books structure and text combine essays with frameworks and case studies to create a highly contextual analysis that serves as building blocks for the foundation of this interdisciplinary new field.
Thus, all over the world we see tensions developing between various stakeholders of different water uses. In this regard this book is cutting edge and a refreshing narrative of an extremely important subject. Susskind produced a detailed guide that groups and organizations of all kinds can use instead a consensus building alternative to parliamentary procedure. The authors succeed in tackling topics of great complexity and laying out the stepping stones by which civil engineering, hydrology and politics can be integrated into a practice that can solve real problems in specific places, all done with great clarity. In Built to Win: Creating a World-Class Negotiating Organization, Susskind and Hal Movius 2009 explain why negotiation training so often produces less than satisfying results.
The Indopotamia Role Play Simulation. Este site está conforme o novo Acordo Ortográfico. Their thesis for water systems is that they are open, complex, and have constantly changing inputs. If there is any major shortcoming of the book, it is on the lack of addressing the exciting future of technology that beckons water resources management. Co-authored with Lawrence Susskind and Eileen Babbitt. He has been a visiting lecturer at more than 50 universities in 20 countries. One of the major constraints of this concept is the gap between the well-defined philosophy and the fuzzy definition of operational and testable indicators for the achievement of its goals and the performance of strategies and elements.
