Digital Planning for your projects
Geodesignhub provides technology for "facilitated negotiations" between stakeholders where there is conflict and disagreement over a course of action. These negotiations are aimed at the development of consensus and agreements. After this course, you will learn about digital tools that are available for enabling Digital Negotiations using Geodesignhub. Management of our lands, rivers and seas is a increasingly contentious problem and one that necessitates negotiations. Facilitating these negotiations is a important skill that is increasingly in demand. Mediation is about working with people to understand their position and develop their powers of negotiating and achieve outcomes where everyone wins.
Negotiations in planning and decision making are not new; they have been used since time immemorial to develop compromise and move projects forward. However, in Geodesignhub these negotiations happen with supporting digital tools and a digital first method and using simple diagrams to communicate ideas. The introduction of new digital technology leads to new outcomes and decisions.
