International Program

During the past 15 years, the interweaving of economic globalization, sustainable development commitments, and rising expectations for stakeholder participation have made international development planning and decision-making more challenging than ever. From communities to the governing bodies of international organizations, complexity and controversy have raised concerns about how to integrate and balance competing viewpoints and interests.

Population(s) Served

Government agencies must continually address the competing interests
of diverse stakeholders, ranging from other agencies to advocacy groups
and local communities. In order to work effectively, agencies must be
able to identify their stakeholders and the best forums, tools, and
opportunities for collaboration.

CBI helps government agencies achieve well-informed, technically
proficient, and widely accepted decisions by bringing agencies and
their stakeholders together to share information, develop alternatives,
and make decisions in productive and appropriate settings.

We offer in-depth knowledge of group dynamics, multiparty
negotiations, and intercultural interaction. Using mediation,
facilitation, and a range of specialized tools for assessment,
evaluation, process design, we help our clients integrate thought and
action to achieve wiser, more stable, and fairer results.
