Alignment and connectivity in reducing deforestation
This report examines levers that offer opportunities for systemic transformation – through cooperation, coordination and integration of actors within and across different levels – in four key dimensions. Multi-stakeholder collaboration for systemic change provides a framework for future progress in commodities.
Systemic change involves working with complexity to help actors glimpse the whole system and to recognize their place within it and the opportunities to contribute to positive change through collaborative and innovative processes.
The four-dimensional framework classifies the effective actions:
1: INCREASING COHESION BETWEEN LEVELS OF GOVERNANCE AND ACTION
- The vertical axis
2: STRENGTHENING HORIZONTAL DIALOGUE BETWEEN ACTORS
- The horizontal component
3: INCREASING GOVERNMENT CAPACITY FOR SYNERGISTIC ALIGNMENT
- The “fuel” for the system
4: INTEGRATING AND DIVERSIFYING FLOWS OF RESOURCES AND INCENTIVES
- Reducing the “friction” in the system, by better alignment and action towards systemic solutions. 4 main axes of action are presented, with 13 individual recommendations.
