CADR Success Stories

Collaboration between stakeholders and government agencies in the Klamath River Basin has helped to overcome natural resource conflicts there. Through the video portraits in the “Human Conflict” series, filmmaker Nic Askew explores the divisions between tribal, farming, ranching and environmental communities and the ways that individuals have come together to pursue collaborative solutions.

Since the early 2000s, members of the inter-agency, interdisciplinary National Riparian Service Team (NRST) and their affiliates have helped foster these relationships and the development of a common understanding of riparian function and management through consensus-building workshops, demonstration projects, community-based training and field trips& and assistance with watershed assessments. The BLM CADR program works to deliver similar services for collaboration and dispute resolution, including working with the NRST.
