National Roster of Environmental Dispute Resolution and Consensus Building Professionals

This roster was developed by the U.S. Institute for Environmental Conflict Resolution from a desire to improve access to qualified professionals for all who are sponsoring or engaging in ECR processes. Roster members are all impartial third-party practitioners (e.g., professional facilitators and mediators) experienced with environmental, natural resource and public lands issues, including matters related to energy, transportation and land use.

The Roster of ECR Practitioners search system and referral service are available to anyone interested in the use of environmental conflict resolution (ECR) and collaborative problem solving.

The application process is open and continuous. Membership is open to experienced environmental professionals with expertise as impartial third parties (e.g., facilitators, mediators and dispute systems designers). Practitioners do not pay a fee but must meet specific entry criteria to become a roster member.

To be included as a member of the roster, a practitioner's experience must match with the entry criteria: 1) served as the principal professional on two to ten environmental cases totaling 200 case hours in aggregate; and 2) a total of 60 points across three categories relating to case experience, training work, and substantive background.
