INTERLAKEN+10: Governing Forest Landscapes:
Lessons Learnt from Ten Years of Experience and
The Way Forward Post-2015

3-6 February 2015 | Interlaken, Switzerland

Daily Web Coverage
Highlights for Thursday, 5 February 2015

On Thursday, a morning plenary discussed the findings of the small roundtable sessions held under World Café on Wednesday, addressing: bridging the governance gap, interest- and rights-based approaches; integrating different actors in governance; social equity, indigenous peoples and local communities, and politics of scale; transforming knowledge into action; emerging private forest governance regimes; forest law compliance and enforcement; coordination among sectors and levels; and illegal logging and deforestation. Plenary then heard reports from the regional and global breakout groups that met on Wednesday and Thursday, and discussed the identified challenges and recommendations.

Participants were then split into three groups to attend field trips. The first group went to Lauterbrunnen and Mürren for a walk in the snow with glimpses at the landscape; the second headed for Boltigen to learn about governance in the landscape of Simmental and its community forests and alpine pastures; and the third visited Emmental and its private forests in a mosaic landscape.
