Enabling services from land and water resources through actor-oriented forest landscape restauration

Eastern Africa Regional Alumni Capacity Building and Networking Seminar: Enabling services from land and water resources through actor-oriented forest landscape restauration Kampala, Uganda; 5-11 March 2023 Call for Applications! Not only since the founding of the Global Landscape Forum in 2013, there is a growing recognition that urgent, complex development policy issues require landscape-based approaches to overcome one-dimensional and disciplinary silo-thinking. Solving natural resources management and governance conflicts and crisis require interdisciplinary and holistic ways in policy making and corresponding actions on the ground. This paradigm change manifests in the rise of integrative concepts to natural resources management such as Forest Landscape Restoration (FLR) or Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM). Such multi-disciplinary approaches impose new demands on traditional disciplines such as forestry, hydrology, ecology, nature conservation or agriculture to think outside the box. It challenges scientists, policy-makers, development practitioners and entrepreneurs to increasingly communicate and cooperate beyond their disciplinary scopes.
The seminar addresses nationals from Eastern African countries who formerly studied (BSc, MSc, PhD) or participated in short-term trainings (minimum 3 months) at a German university, and are currently living and working in their home countries. Interested alumni from all disciplines (natural and social sciences) and all sectors (science and research, administration, civil society, private sector, development cooperation) engaged in natural resources and environmental management are cordially invited to apply.
