    We welcome comments and discussion about this working draft of six principles underlying collaborative governance practices. We include processes for reaching agreement on policies, as well as for policy implementation. We believe there are many good policies in place that are never implemented and/or where collaborative approaches will be necessary to achieve good policy outcomes.

    The six draft principles are:

    Transparency and Accountability -
    Processes enable participants to make decisions in the public eye and agreements enable people to monitor whether commitments are carried out.

    Equity and Inclusiveness -
    All interests affected or involved in the issue are invited to participate.

    Effectiveness and Efficiency -
    Results are tested to make sure they make practical sense.

    Public concerns are authentically addressed.

    Forum Neutrality-
    The process is conducted in an unbiased manner.

    Consensus-Based Decision making -
    The intent is to build broad-based agreements wherever possible, rather than relying on majority rule.

Special Note:

Welcome to the NCDD website. What you see here, in the way of web design and layout is a work in progress. The forum feature works as you would expect, but we have just begun our web re-design and are testing the "bare bones" with this conversation. Many of the links and buttons outside the forum may not work as expected and we thank you in advance for your patience with us.

This re-design marks a new chapter in the online life of NCDD. It began in 1998 with a small online project called the Dialogue to Action Initiative and became the NCDD website after our first national conference in 2002. Beginning in 2009, we are turning our focus to embracing existing tools, instead of creating our own, as a way to further the networking opportunities of our members and offer examples, through use, of the many great tools that are available to us and our community.

Visit the Main Page of our website to learn more about NCDD. Please let us know what you think of the design! Send your feedback to [email protected].
