Participation or involvement? Development of forest strategies on national and sub-national level in Germany

  • Weber, Norbert

Abstract

Forest strategies play an important role in policy-making on national and sub-national level. Based on scientific approaches of strategy development and participatory decision making (e.g. Buchy and Hoverman, 2000; Gane, 2007; Saarikoski et al., 2010), the article explains the connections between National Forest Programmes (NFP), forest strategies and related fora for dialogue. Moreover, participatory approaches in a multi-level governance context (e.g. Bernstein and Cashore, 2012; Lindstad and Solberg, 2012) are discussed at the example of Germany.
