Meridian Institute

Multi-Stakeholder Dialogue on Roadless Area Conservation

Related: Environment and Natural Resources

At the request of the Forest Roads Working Group (FRWG)—an ad hoc coalition of conservationists, sportsmen and women, members of the forest products industry, and outdoor recreation businesses—Meridian served as convenor and facilitator of a multi-stakeholder dialogue focused on how to resolve the longstanding issue of the degree of permanent protection that should be provided for roadless areas in the National Forest system.


Meridian conducted extensive convening interviews with affected stakeholders that eventually led to the facilitation of the multi-stakeholder dialogue and the development and submission of recommendations from the FRWG to the US Department of Agriculture and the Forest Service.
