Network members include American Indian, Alaska Native, Native Hawaiian and other practitioners who work with Native peoples. These
practitioners have experience with environmental, natural and cultural resources, and public/trust lands issues. All have background in
resolving disputes involving Native people or communities. Network members are accessible through our Referral Services.
Hundreds of ECR practitioners located across the nation have joined the roster. Each has worked more than 200 hours as a third party neutral
on environmental or land use cases.
In 2005 a federal policy memorandum on environmental conflict resolution (ECR) was issued, directing agencies to
increase the effective use of ECR and their institutional capacity for collaborative problem solving. Learn more about this important
development and how it is being implemented.
