We have concluded that establishing resilient landscapes is the most promising way forward and that Sweden’s extensive experience and competencies constitute a substantial resource. This means Sweden could make a considerable contribution towards fulfilling the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Building resilient landscapes is key to sustainable development and Swedish understanding and knowledge could catalyse positive change in the management of forest landscapes at the global level.
