Adapting the Interactive Problem-Solving Method to an Environmental Conflict: Evaluation of an Eastern Nile Basin Dialogue WorkshopnceNCCR North-South Dialogue No. 3by Simon A. MasonBern, NCCR North-South, 2007
Participatory resource and conflict management is one of the greatest challenges of our time. If stakeholders are not involved in this process, solutions will not be locally legitimised, or sustainable. “Dialogue Workshops” are one form of participatory resource and conflict management. The present paper summarises the theory behind this method, and describes its application in the Eastern Nile Basin with participants from Egypt, Sudan and Ethiopia. This provides the basis for a provisional assessment of the methods, limitations and potentials. Concrete questions are listed that may also be useful for designing or evaluating Dialogue Workshops used in other settings.
