Webinar: Climate Change Negotiations with Smartsettle Infinity

Webinar: Climate Change Negotiations with Smartsettle Infinity

Cyberweek 2015: Climate Change Negotiations with Smartsettle Infinity from Bryan J Hanson on Vimeo.

Webinar Description:

Nearly all scientists agree that we must take action on climate change now — or face a devastating cascade of natural disasters that will change life on earth as we know it.* Translating that imperative into effective decisions is no easy matter. The Smartsettle Infinity eNegotiation system can help decision makers that are motivated to reach agreement and move them from competition to cooperation in spite of their differences. This webinar will include a simulation showing how donor nations providing funding can be included in a negotiation between three hypothetical countries to minimize their carbon footprint in a watershed management agreement. We will show how Smartsettle simplifies their negotiation by modelling the problem in a way that makes it easy to compare alternatives and come to a solution that achieves climate change goals while maximizing their mutual satisfaction with the outcome.
