International course: Governance of landscapes, forests and people

Wageningen University, the Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR) and the World Agroforestry Centre have designed a 2-week course on landscape management.

Towards innovative arrangements for inclusive decision making at landscape level, is the title of the international course for forest and nature management professionals. Scholarships are available for applicants before 20 March 2015.

Where: Bogor, Indonesia

When: 24 August to 4 September 2015

This course challenges forest and nature management professionals to adopt an integrative perspective, looking beyond the forest boundaries, taking into account cross-sectoral concerns and working in multi-disciplinary teams. During the course we will focus on the development of new institutional arrangements at landscape level, including multi-stakeholder platforms and networks, and their financial support mechanisms. We will visit a landscape where PES arrangements are implemented. Here, we will analyze how these arrangements steer landscape dynamics, and how they facilitate processes of stakeholder dialogue on the ground.
