Water, forests, people – building resilient landscapes
The Stockholm International Water Institute (SIWI) Swedish Water House (SWH) Cluster Group for Water and Forests started with a mission to highlight
the importance of forests and sustainable forest mana- gement to securing water resources globally. 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 land- scapes is key to sustainable development and Swedish understanding and knowledge could catalyse positive change in the management of forest landscapes at
the global level.
