Baltic Landscape in change – innovative approaches towards sustainable forested landscapes.

I was involved in Work Package 5 (Adaptive co-management and balancing of values in terrestrial habitats), where we used the case of Vilhelmina Upper Forest Common (VUFC) in northern Sweden to study participatory forest management/governance. In particular, I led the action-research component to analyse and encourage shareholders’ participation in the governance of VUFC. We studied shareholders’ engagement in the VUFC on one hand, while on the other, we analysed the board and forest manager’s planning and decision-making process.
