Subject: Collaboration, Policy, Economics
Abstract: The goal of the Barriers to Collaborative Forestry workshop was to examine national policies and other factors that may be hampering project implementation and to suggest changes to help collaborative forestry groups move forward. Overall, workshop participants agreed that frustration and burnout in collaborative forestry is a result of several important and interrelated factors. First, the anticipation of unrealistic outcomes for collaborative efforts has created expectations that have not been fulfilled. Second, inconsistent commitment, participation, and support of collaboratives within the federal land management agencies have made it difficult for collaborative efforts to succeed. Finally, collaborative group participants may lack the capacity or experience to deliver outcomes.
