A conceptual analysis of structural variables encountered in environmental conflicts as well as issues in conflicts are examined. Using various conflict resolution models and knowing the national environmental protection climate and typology of conflict, an appropriate strategy for resolution can be identified. Two major environmental conflicts are analyzed. Conclusions indicate that unless the involved parties believe that although environmental conflicts exist, agreement is possible, no effective resolution can be implemented that will satisfy all parties.
