                            I.    INTRODUCTION

   With  continual increase in global population and increased natural  resource

consumption, natural resource disputes are inevitable.2 Natural resource disputes

are inherently complex and difficult to settle. They may quickly incorporate remote

issues, additional parties, and pressure from public attention where successful

solution has several definitions.3 At the very least, the success of natural resource

dispute resolutions should be measured by retaining the resource. Because many of

these natural resources are limited, yet crucial for our survival, a more effective

problem-solving approach  is needed to conserve the quality and quantity of these

resources. Proposed below is a new conceptual dispute resolution model, termed the

Resource-Based  Mediation  System   (herein referred to as the  Resource-Based

System), created to address the deficiencies in prior resource dispute practices,

generate  durable,  long-lasting resolutions, and  simultaneously  conserve  the

resource.4  This model  is applicable to most natural resources; however, water

disputes are the primary focus in this introduction.
