"Collaborative decision-making has developed as a way to reconcile conflicting interests and deal with complex technical information that can otherwise lead to impasse. A litigious and polarized society that faces issues that cut across boundaries has often been stymied by traditional public decision making approaches, including courtrooms, administrative procedures and legislative processes. As an alternative, collaborative approaches bring together affected people and organizations to work through the scientific and values-based dimensions of a decision, in order to build understanding, generate creative solutions and foster buy-in."
