Running head: NON-EMPLOYMENT CONFLICT MANAGEMENT
Non-Employment Conflict Management
The Wamayo River and its tributaries form the Wamayo River Basin. Within the last two years, dams have been built on three of the tributaries which support hydropower projects and supply irrigation water to farmers. The Wamayo Basin Management and Conservation (WBMC) Department is an entity of the federal authorities to formulate policies concerning water management, conservation of water, wildlife, and habitat.

We will also develop a plan to help implement and measure the resolutions.
Potential Non-Organizational Conflict Identifications
Although the company will take precautions to ensure that the dams are built correctly and efficiently, there are always the potential risks that conflicts could occur. There are four different stakeholder groups that have interests in the project that need to be taken into consideration; The Salmon Survival Group (SSG), The Wamayo Department of Energy, The Northwest Timber and Paper Association, and The Wamayo Farmers Association. The SSG is a research organization set up by the federal authorities to provide scientific guidance for federal policy making. The Wamayo Department of Energy is concerned with making the region completely independent of traditional non-sustainable sources of energy by switching to renewable, non-polluting energy sources. Hydropower is a top priority for this group. The Northwest Timber and Paper Association is...
