Gunilla Lidén, Forest Initiative Target 16.6 Develop effective, accountable and transparent institutions at all levels 16 Peace, Justice and strong Institutions Goal: Promote peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development, provide access to justice for all and build effective, accountable and inclusive institutions at all levels

Editor's Notes

  1. Forest and forestry is more than trees only. Involves different actors that sometime have different views Beside the Forest Agency, there are several government agencies and other actors involved in shaping the forest sector in Sweden
  2. 4
  3. Networks & clusters in National and International Examples: - Policy for Global Development Network – cooperation between authorities involved in management of natural resources (directly and indirectly) and under the Ministry of Enterprise and Innovation ( SKS, SJV, SLV, SLU. SVA to be included as well). The Network is organizing todays seminar together with SIANI - The Water and Forest Cluster Group – representatives from Government Agency, Private Sector, NGO´s and Research (SIWI, SKS, SLU. SSC, Sveaskog, Stora Enso) less active 2016 compared to previous two years) - Informal network for Government Authorities involved in Policy for Global Development. Very active network Megaflorestais Agreements with “sister” organizations in other countries Existing or in the pipeline e.g. Indonesia, China, Mexico, Sao Paulo State, Belarus, Russia etc. Difficult to move from intentions to activities Development cooperation (some recent examples) - Forest initiative 2009 – 2012 to strengthen involvement by different Swedish actors in PGD/PGU (cooperation with the Forest Assocation and Sida) - Capacity building of forest officers from India 2013 – 2016 (together with SLU and Sveaskog ) - National Forest Inventory in Albania in the pipeline (with SLU and funded by World bank) International processes SFA is involved in a number of international forest related processes in close cooperation with the Ministry. This includes EU, European processes like Forest Europe as well as global initiatives on climate change, biodiversity conservation and other forest processes within the UN. International reporting Swedish Forest Agency is responsible for reporting Swedish forest related information to various international organisations, incl. FAO, UNECE, EUROSTAT etc.
  4. A lot is going on Delegation appointed by the government to prepare a Plan of Action (Handlingsplan) Sidas special assignment include provision of a forum for Director Generals from different Government Agencies…. Government assignment: A number of government agencies including SFA should contribute with information and an assment of where we can contribute to Agenda 2030 – nationally an internationally. In SFA a special group of four persons has been appointed - work is in progress. Report to be delivered end of August. We are struggling a bit with How to limit ourselves (and if this is a sensible approach) To what extent we should take the proposed indicators into account Not knowing what the final Plan of Action might look like
  5. Goal 1 brings attention to the need of addressing bottlenecks related to land and user rights , natural resources, financial services etc. These are fundamental conditions if poor smallholders should be able to benefit from agriculture, forestry, fishery Another related issue is the need for market access on reasonable terms.
  6. Goal 2 Agriculture and forestry are interlinked, sometime competing for the same land sometime integrated with each other. - The large forest fires in e.g. South East Asia could just as well be termed agriculture fires. The forests are set on fire to clear the land for agriculture (!). - Shifting cultivation is usually pratctised on forest land (agriculture integrated in forestry?). - Agroforestry on the other hand is an example where forestry is integrated in agriculture (farming system). Local particpation and empowerment are key factors as their strategies/ideas on food security
  7. Goal 7 Energy based on biomass (e.g. wood) can reduce and is already reducing the use of fossile fuels. In Sweden bioebergy accounts for around 30% of the total energy use. Wood has been the most important source of energy in the world over time. Much of this is not managed in a sustainable manner leading to deforestation and degradation of natural resources. The reasons behind this are partly related to lack of ”rights” and institutional bottlenecks. Landless and the poorest (often women) are sometime depending on collection of fuelwood for their livelihood The challenges are considerable but needs to be addressed.
  8. Goal 12 bring attention of the need to sustainably manage and use natural resources – both renewable and non renewable. Raw material from renewable natural resources can sometime substitute for non renewable resources and thereby contribute to more sustainable development
  9. Goal 13 Forestry and trees can together with other measures reduce the risks and/or impact of natural disasters such as floods, erosion and land slides as well as droughts and land degradation. Water for these cattle's are originates from the mountain in the background. Different cattle herders (Massaier) are queuing with their livestock to share water (example on informal institutional arrangements)
  10. Goal15 is the most relevant ”thematic” goal if assessed in relation to all the targets under this goal. Only one is mentioned here. Sweden has comprehensive experiences of forest management. A significant achievement has been the restoration of the degraded forests in Sweden. The forest sector has played a significant role in Swedens economy and not the least in the rural areas. Sustainable Forest Management (initially sustainable yields of raw material) has been a guiding principle. The Forest Agency has been one of the main actors in this development. Forest restoration is also on the global agenda with initiatives like the Bonn Challenge (150 mha under restoration by 2020) and New York Declaration (350 ha under restorarion by 2030)
  11. Goal 16 is relevant for the Forest Agency in our role as a government institution. Local group of smallholders has got certificate to start a small local saw mill for commercial purposes
