Sustainable Forest Management as a potential integrative approach in international public policy
Mattei Faggin, Joana ; Offermans, A. - \ 2016
In: Sustainable Development Research at ICIS / Cövers, R., Kraker, J. de, Kemp, R., Martens, P., Lente, H. van, Maastricht : Universitaire Pers Maastricht - ISBN 9789461596475 - p. 189 - 201.
Deforestation negatively affects the provision of environmental services, and
consequently affects local populations’ livelihoods that depend on the use of forest
resources. Sustainable Forest Management (SFM) aims to use forest resources in such a
way as to provide environmental services while at the same time achieving economic
and social goals. Even though there is currently no forest convention in an international
public policy context, the SFM concept is included in several international public policy
forums. The present chapter analyses SFM in three United Nations Conventions (CBD –
on Biological Diversity, UNFCCC – on Climate Change, and UNCCD – to Combat
Desertification). The chapter concludes that SFM is a broad concept, and its
implementation specificities are addressed at a national policy scale, which is mainly
influenced by the sovereignty principle. Finally, we concluded that the SFM concept still
hardly touches upon the social dimension, compared to the economic and
environmental dimensions.

The role of social learning as a governance mechanism in natural resource management has been frequently highlighted, but progress in finding evidence for this role and gaining insight into the conditions that promote it are hampered by the lack of operational definitions of social learning and practical methods to measure it. In this article, we present a simple and flexible method to measure social learning, whether it has occurred and to what extent, among stakeholders in natural resource management. The method yields measurements of social learning that are visual, quantitative and qualitative. First, we elaborate our definition of social learning as a convergence of perspectives and outline how stakeholder perspectives in natural resource management can be described with Cultural Theory. Next, we provide a generic description of the method, followed by two examples illustrating its application to the domains of water and land management. Finally, we discuss relative strengths and weaknesses of the method and how it could be applied to improve our understanding of factors that contribute to social learning.
Erosienormeringsonderzoek Zuid-Limburg; veld- en simulatiestudie
Roo, A.P.J. de; Dijk, P.M. van; Ritsema, C.J. ; Cremers, N.H.D.T. ; Stolte, J. ; Oostindie, K. ; Offermans, R.J.E. ; Kwaad, F.J.P.M. ; Verzandvoort, M.A. - \ 1995
Wageningen : SC-DLO (Rapport 364.1) - 234 p.
Het doel van het erosienormeringsonderzoek was een toetsingskader op te stellen waarin de bestemmings-, beheers- en inrichtingsaspecten kunnen worden beoordeeld. Hiertoe is een veld- en simulatiestudie verricht. De veldstudie bevatte metingen op perceels-, helling- en stroomgebiedniveau. De simulatiestudie resulteerde in een fysisch-deterministisch en hydrologisch erosiemodel (LISEM: Limburg Soil Erosion Model), waarmee diverse scenario's zijn doorgerekend. De veldstudie gaf een integraal beeld van het mechanisme van water- en sedimentafvoer in de lössgebieden van Zuid-Limburg. De resultaten van het model LISEM zijn redelijk betrouwbaar. Uit de simulaties bleek dat een combinatie van beheers- en inrichtingsmaatregelen de beste resultaten oplevert.
