Track: Technology, Tools and Innovations in ECR

Conflict between a federal land management agency (BLM) and a state department of transportation (Arizona DOT) led to the collaborative development of ADOT’s “Project Reference,” a cutting-edge, electronic, web-based, technological tool that reduces conflict between project stakeholders and facilitates collaborative protection of the environment. In an interactive panel setting, participants will learn about what inspired this tool and how it was collaboratively developed. Participants also will participate in a real time, online demonstration of this only recently affordable tool. Three experts will use real life scenarios and online examples in their presentations and responses to audience questions.

Primary Target Audience(s): Government Staff (Federal, State, Local and Tribal)
