IMFN: Model Forests for the SDGs

Annual Review 2018

Learning from the IMFN Annual Review 2018

Model Forests are an important addition to every forest practitioner’s sustainable development toolbox.

This approach to building and managing the governance of large-scale landscapes is founded on convening a diverse range of stakeholders — such as local community associations, indigenous peoples, governments, and industry — and developing inclusive partnerships as complex as the values and uses of the landscape it encompasses.

Model Forests bring joint solutions and innovative strategies to shared challenges such as climate change, wildfires and pests, market access and livelihoods, health and well-being, and land-use conflicts.

This annual review presents IMFN's approach, principles, and successes, as well as showcasing the contribution of Model Forests to the SDGs.
