ADR Compendium

    Demonstrating Cost-Effective & Efficient Resolution of Conflicts
    May 2011

    The Alternative Dispute Resolution Section set out to demonstrate through studies and reporting agencies what it already knew; that ADR processes, such as mediation, facilitation, arbitration, and consensus building, along with the other processes discussed in Part I of the Compendium, indeed prevent and resolve conflicts and disputes in a cost-effective and efficient manner. These ADR processes can be adapted to the challenges facing private and public sectors, particularly as they operate in this strained economy.
