Computer Aided Dispute Resolution: Proceedings from the CADRe Workshop - Albuquerque, New Mexico, September 13-14, 2007
On September 13th and 14th 2007, in Albuquerque New Mexico, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Sandia National Laboratories and the U.S. Institute for Environmental Conflict Resolution held the first-ever workshop on Computer Aided Dispute Resolution (CADRe). Fifty-three people from six federal agencies, three national laboratories, irrigation districts, state government, river basin commissions, universities, nonprofits and the private sector came together to share experiences as practitioners and promoters of CADRe for water resource planning and management. This was the first gathering of its kind, the focus being exclusively on CADRe, defining its boundaries, best practices; and how to institutionalize and promote CADRe water resources planning and management.

(The) Shared Vision Planning Primer: How to incorporate computer aided dispute resolution in water resources planning
This document is the starting point for those new to the concept of SVP. The document reviews some of the current challenges in water resources decision making and describes how SVP can overcome these challenges. It defines the major components of SVP (traditional water planning, structured public participation, and an integrated computer model), and then walks through a simple example to give you a sense of how it is applied.

Analysis of Process Issues in Shared Vision Planning Cases
Much of the literature regarding Shared Vision Planning (or other forms of Computer-Aided Dispute Resolution) focuses on the characteristics of the computer model developed during the process, on related technical studies, and on and the evaluation of alternatives. This report looks instead at the process followed during Shared Vision Planning by analyzing the processes used in a number of published Shared Vision Planning cases. Of particular interest are the types and mechanisms for stakeholder involvement in developing and using the model. The US Army Engineers Institute for Water Resources (IWR) is a proponent of Shared Vision Planning. This analysis focuses primarily on Shared Vision Planning cases posted on IWR's Shared Vision Planning website or included in the handout materials for a 2007 workshop on Computer-Aided Dispute Resolution. A few additional cases have been added from cases described in a literature review prepared for IWR by CDM, which provides a much broader look at the literature regarding use of computer modeling in planning or decision making.

Performance Measures to Assess the Benefits of Shared Vision Planning and Other Collaborative Modeling Processes
Collaborative modeling has evolved as an approach to support water resources planning since the Institute for Water Resources (IWR) pioneered the Shared Vision Planning (SVP) approach in the early 1990s through the National Drought Study. To date, however, the benefits of collaborative modeling and similar approaches have not been explicitly evaluated. In 2007, IWR set out to develop performance measures to address this need. This report summarizes the work that has been completed to develop a suite of performance measures. The report presents background information on SVP and collaborative modeling processes, describes the activities conducted to identify performance measures, describes the measures, and discusses methodological considerations for applying the measures retrospectively and prospectively to evaluate the benefits of collaborative modeling in completed and active cases.

Computer-Aided Dispute Resolution 2nd Workshop Summary and Strategic Plan
The Shared Vision Planning program at the Institute for Water Resources (IWR) uses an innovative, collaborative approach to solve water resources management issues. It integrates traditional water resources planning methods, structured public participation, and collaborative computer modeling into a multifaceted planning process. This program is unique because it emphasizes public involvement in water resources management and the use of collectively developed computer models along with tried-and-true Corps planning principles.

How to Conduct a Shared Vision Planning Process
In this guide, Shared Vision Planning is described as a process for resolving water management disputes, because that is the context in which it is used by the Corps of Engineers. But the technique can be and has been used to address issues in other fields such as transportation and energy planning. IWR believes the approach has broad applicability.
