*To explore lessons from around world about what forms of collaboration tend to nurture the emergence of stewardship
*To share lessons on different types of collaborative processes
*To discover the necessary conditions for achieving successful outcomes across these diverse collaborative processes
When people speak of collaboration, they often aggregate very different types of initiatives. Some may emerge organically; others through litigation; and still others through top-down mandates. These collaborations may take place at a range of scales. The level of collaboration may vary from minimal to joint decision-making. These and other contextual distinctions may result in very different outcomes. This group intends to uncover the conditions in which successful outcomes can be achieved under these various starting conditions.
Recent systematic assessments of collaborative governance have shed light on the complexities of collaboration, but they have not explicitly focused on the enablers and barriers in different contexts. All of the workshop participants have engaged with understanding collaboration within individual cases. Our goal is to draw upon these many place-based studies to work (collaboratively) toward improving outcomes by identifying the underpinnings for success across diverse types of collaboration.
