(p.289) 11 The Future of Collaboration
Beyond Consensus

Richard D. Margerum

The MIT Press

The chapter discusses the future of collaboration through different instances and examples. It considers a range of trends that have a significant impact on environmental management and its implementation, with a review of specific trends observed in action, organizational, and policy collaborative initiatives. The chapter states that such collaborative efforts will continue to be a key component in solving many environmental problems due to the need for combining social, economic, and environmental efforts. The long-term success of collaborative efforts will depend on the ability of such efforts to sustain over a period and continue to address problems. The performance of organizational collaborative efforts is influenced by political and authoritative changes despite being driven by similar trends as action collaborative. The future of policy collaboration will be determined by the eagerness of political leaders for problem-solving instead of independent solution implementation or legislation.
