Gestion de conflits

Negotiation and mediation techniques for natural resource management
Antonia Engel, Benedikt Korf (2005). Les techniques de négociation et de médiation appliquées à la gestion des ressources naturelles. Also available in English and Spanish.

This manual is about how to help people to deal with conflicts that are undermining or disrupting natural resource management, impeding development, and causing outbreaks of violence. It looks at how negotiation and consensus building can be used to manage conflict and build collaboration, and provides practical, step-by-step guidance on how to establish and manage a process of consensual negotiations involving multiple stakeholders. The guide is intended for practitioners working on participatory/collaborative natural resource management and rural livelihoods projects.

This publication seeks to support sustainable livelihoods in Africa and elsewhere by sharing the recent, real-life experience of Africans who have used the processes and principles of consensual negotiation to address natural resource conflicts. It is the second part of a series of training material on natural resource conflict management developed by FAO’s Livelihood Support Programme, supporting the discussions presented in the Negotiation and mediation techniques for natural resource management.
Land tenure alternative conflict management Land tenure alternative conflict management FAO Land tenure manuals 2

It focuses on how to manage and resolve conflicts over land tenure rights, security of tenure and land access in the field of rural development. It results from complementary activities undertaken within FAO’s Livelihood Support Programme (LSP) and Land Tenure Service. It addresses the specific issues of land tenure identified in the volume “Negotiation and Mediation Techniques for Natural Resource Management” published by the LSP on September 2005. It is therefore presented as the second volume in that series, and is the first of a number of planned complementary volumes in that series that will address specific areas where conflict is increasingly evident.
