Global forests and land-use decisions

Globally forest and land-use changes are being driven by increasing market value of timber, agro-food and minerals. The consequences of these changes impact biodiversity ecosystems, including livelihood needs of food, water and shelter for billion people, particularly vulnerable communities. This course is designed to offer opportunities to explore stakeholder perspectives in formulating, advocating, sharing and implementing strategic decisions on forest and land-use with focus on the Global South, but including European cases. By bringing together a diverse range of multilateral/bilateral agencies, scientific experts, governments, think tanks, timber industries, land justice forums, media and artists, civil-societies, this course will explore ways to strengthen partnerships for coping with forest and land-use change that is equitable e.g., ethnicity, gender and social inclusion and ethical e.g., recognition, justice, in the long-term aligning with the Agenda 2030. In this intensive short-term (7.5 credits) course, students will be exposed to literature review, field-based comparative case-studies such as collective forest and land tenure rights, restorations or land-grabs, and group projects that expose them to complexities of real-world decision making and developing skills in using case-study methods, ethics and communication.
