Environmental diplomacy : negotiating more effective global agreements by Lawrence Susskind( )

38 editions published between 1993 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,197 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"International environmental agreements have increased exponentially within the last five decades. However, decisions on policies to address key issues such as biodiversity loss, climate change, ozone depletion, hazardous waste transport, and numerous other planetary challenges require individual countries to adhere to international norms. Environmental Diplomacy: Negotiating More Effective Global Agreements provides an accessible narrative on understanding the geopolitics of negotiating international environmental agreements and clear guidance on improving the current system. Authors Lawrence Susskind and Saleem Ali expertly observe international environmental negotiations to effectively inform the reader on the geopolitics of protecting our planet. This second edition offers an additional perspective from the Global South as well as providing a broader analysis of the role of science in environmental treaty-making. It provides a unique contribution as a panoramic analysis of the process of environmental treaty-making"--Unedited summary from book cover
Better environmental policy studies : how to design and conduct more effective analysis by Lawrence Susskind( )

15 editions published between 2001 and 2013 in English and held by 1,787 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Environmental policy studies commissioned by government agencies or other stakeholders can play a vital role in environmental decisionmaking; they provide much-needed insight into policy options and specific recommendations for action. But the results of even the most rigorous studies are frequently misappropriated or misunderstood and are as likely to confuse an issue as they are to clarify it. Better environmental policy studies explores this problem, as it considers the shortcomings of current approaches to policy studies and presents a pragmatic new approach to the subject. Reviewing five cases that are widely regarded as the most effective policy studies to have been conducted in the United States in the last few decades, the authors present a comprehensive guide to the concepts and methods required for conducting effective policy studies

The consensus building handbook : a comprehensive guide to reaching agreement by Lawrence Susskind( Book )

14 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 934 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Whether you work in the corporate world, a nonprofit organization, or the government sector, you likely face the need to work with others to solve problems and make decisions on a daily basis. And you've undoubtedly been frustrated by how laborious and conflict-ridden such group efforts can be. At all levels--from neighborhood block associations to boards of directors of multinational corporations--the consensus building process is highly effective in an increasingly fragmented, contentious society. In addition, the old top-down methods such as Robert's Rules of Orders often prompt more problems then they solve. Consensus helps you to implement better, more creative solutions. It provides a winning alternative to top-down decision making--and even parliamentary procedure. By learning to build consensus, stakeholders come to understand and respect one another's perspectives. The consensus building process allows participants to find solutions and forge agreements that meet everyone's needs--and provides a meaningful basis for effective, long-range implementation of decisions. The Consensus Building Handbook provides a blueprint to help make the process work in your organization, including a practical, quick-reference Short Guide. Plus, you'll find in-depth commentary and seventeen case studies with in-depth commentaries to provide the theoretical basis for this approach. --From publisher's description
Good for you, great for me : finding the trading zone and winning at win-win negotiation by Lawrence Susskind( )

13 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 687 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To return to an earlier era before "win-win" negotiation was in fashion and seek simply to dominate or bully opponents into submission would be a step in the wrong direction--and a public relations disaster. By showing how to win at win-win negotiating, Lawrence Susskind provides the operational advice you need to satisfy the interests of your back table--the people to whom you report. He also shows you how to deal with irrational people, whose vocabulary seems limited to "no," or with the proverbial 900-pound gorilla. He explains how to find trades that create much more value than either you or your opponent thought possible. His brilliant concept of "the trading zone"--The space where you can create deals that are "good for them but great for you," while still maintaining trust and keeping relationships intact--is a fresh way to re-think your approach to negotiating. The outcome is often the best of both possible worlds: You claim a disproportionate share of the value you've created while your opponents still look good to the people to whom they report. Whether the venue is business, a family dispute, international relations, or a tradeoff that has to be made between the environment and jobs, Susskind provides a breakthrough in how to both think about, and engage in, productive negotiations
Managing climate risks in coastal communities : strategies for engagement, readiness and adaptation by Lawrence Susskind( )

4 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 663 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume reports on the research completed as part of the multi-year New England Climate Adaptation Project (NECAP), a partnership between the MIT Science Impact Collaborative, the US Government's National Estuarine Research Reserve System, four New England coastal towns, and the Consensus Building Institute. The first half of the book offers a series of chapters that explain how and why climate adaptation requires collective rather than individual risk management. It argues that most of the responsibility for responding to climate risks--including sea level rise, storm intensification, changing patterns of rainfall, and increasing temperature--must be taken by local and regional stakeholders. The second half of the book presents the products of NECAP, including stakeholder assessments (showing how key stakeholders think about climate risks), risk assessments (including downscaled forecasts from global climate models presented in a way that is accessible to the public), tailored role play simulations (that other communities can use to engage residents in their locality), community case studies (that provide statistical and qualitative evidence of the before-and-after impact of public engagement in serious games), and the results of public opinion polls following interventions in each community after almost 18 months
Dealing with an angry public : the mutual gains approach to resolving disputes by Lawrence Susskind( Book )

18 editions published between 1996 and 2010 in English and held by 645 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book aims to help business and government leaders negotiate, rather than fight, with their critics. It shows how to identify who the public is, whose concerns to address first, which people and organisations must be convinced of the legitimacy of action taken and how to assess and respond to different types of anger effectively. Acknowledging the crucial role played by the media in shaping public perception and understanding, the authors suggest a way to develop media interaction which is consistent with mutual gain, and also discuss the type of leadership that corporate and government managers must provide.--From publisher's description
Breaking the impasse : consensual approaches to resolving public disputes by Lawrence Susskind( Book )

18 editions published between 1987 and 2005 in English and held by 642 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Negotiating on behalf of others : advice to lawyers, business executives, sports agents, diplomats, politicians, and everybody else by Robert H Mnookin( Book )

12 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 609 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Most negotiation theory assumes direct interaction between two principals. Negotiating on Behalf of Others challenges this view and suggests that because most people negotiate on behalf of others, a radical shift is required in the way we think about (and conduct) negotiations. It offers a framework for understanding the complexity and effects of negotiating on behalf of others and explores how current negotiation theory can be modified to account for negotiation agents. Negotiation agents are broadly defined to include legislators, diplomats, salespersons, sports agents, attorneys and committee chairs - anyone who represents others in a negotiation."--Jacket
Breaking Robert's rules : the new way to run your meeting, build consensus, and get results by Lawrence Susskind( Book )

9 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 597 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Every day in communities across America hundreds of committees, boards, church groups, and social clubs hold meetings where they spend their time engaged in shouting matches and acrimonious debate. Whether they are aware of it or not, the procedures that most such groups rely on to reach decisions were first laid out as Robert's Rules more than 150 years ago by an officer in the U.S. Army's Corps of Engineers. Its arcane rituals of parliamentary procedure and majority rule usually produce a victorious majority and a very dissatisfied minority that expects to raise its concerns, again, at the next possible meeting. This book clearly spells out how any group can work together effectively. After briefly explaining the problems created by Robert's rules, the guide outlines the five key steps toward consensus building, and addresses the specific problems that often get in the way of a group's progress. Appendices include a basic one page "handy guide" that can be distributed at meetings and a case study demonstrating how the ideas presented in the book can also be applied in a corporate context. Written in a non-technical and engaging style, and containing clear ideas and instructions that anyone can understand and use, this one-of-a-kind guide will prove an essential tool for any group desperate to find ways of making their meetings more effective. In addition, neighborhood associations, ad hoc committees, social clubs, and other informal groups lacking a clear hierarchy will find solid advice on how to move forward without resorting to "majority rules" or bickering over who will take leadership positions. This book will change the way you hold meetings forever, paving the way for efficiency, efficacy, and peaceful decision making
Paternalism, conflict, and coproduction : learning from citizen action and citizen participation in Western Europe by Lawrence Susskind( Book )

12 editions published between 1983 and 2013 in English and held by 330 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A research team from the United States has completed an examination of citizen participation experiments in seven European countries. The team included Donald Appleyard, Marc Draisen, David Godschalk, Chester Hartman, Janice Perlman, Hans Spiegel, John Zeisel, and ourselves. This book is a product of our joint efforts. Our studies are aimed at summarizing and sharing what can be learned from recent European efforts to enhance the effectiveness of local government through increased public involvement in the organization and management of public services and urban redevelopment. Almost a year was spent assembling the team, developing a shared framework for analysis and identifying appropriate case study cities. European and American public officials and citizen activists helped us assess the potential impact of such a study on current practice. A second year was spent visiting the European cities and preparing the case-study drafts. Finally, team members gathered in Washington, D.C., with fifty American and European public officials, citizen activists, and scholars. A two-day symposium provided an exciting opportunity to present preliminary research findings and encourage an exchange of ideas between researchers, activists, and policymakers. The final versions of the case studies that appear in this book, along with several commentaries by symposium participants, are written especially for city officials and citizen activists. We have tried to translate the results of our scholarly inquiry into pragmatic suggestions for officials and activists

Water diplomacy : a negotiated approach to managing complex water networks by Shafiqul Islam( Book )

14 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and held by 185 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Water is the resource that will determine the wealth, welfare, and stability of many countries in the twenty-first century. This book offers a new approach to managing water that will overcome the conflicts that emerge when the interactions among natural, societal, and political forces are overlooked. At the heart of these conflicts are complex water networks. In managing them, science alone is insufficient and so is policy-making that doesn't take science into account. Solutions will only emerge if a negotiated or diplomatic approach that blends science, policy, and politics is used
