Collaborative Action and Dispute Resolution

The BLM’s Collaborative Action and Dispute Resolution (CADR) Program offers tools that the BLM and its numerous stakeholders can use to effectively prevent, manage or resolve conflict as we move forward together to manage the public lands for multiple use and sustained yield.  

The BLM uses CADR approaches throughout the agency. This enables the BLM to benefit from the skills, resources and information stakeholders bring to the table, and improves the agency’s abilities to adapt to new information and changing conditions.

CADR Goals

The CADR program seeks to improve collaborative decision making and land use planning through four goals. Read those goals and download our CADR strategic plan.
