Manual: Dedicated Modes of Governance

Efficient governance processes for effective climate change mitigation actions involve complex and controversial solutions (changes in land use, access to and shared use of resources, etc.) requiring the involvement of multiple players at different levels. They reveal gaps relating to traditional government institutions and to areas of public policy intervention.
Governance processes are designed to provide support, expertise and advocacy for the design and joint execution of environmental policies. They offer the possible involvement of a variety of players at different levels and the opportunity to assist in defining and implementing a collective project through an open process of interaction and cooperation.


After writing general manuals about adapted governance, partners of Climactregions adapted the manuals at their regional context.
