Jurisdictional Sustainability

A Primer for Practitioners


Jurisdictional sustainability is achieved when an entire political geography or region completes the transition to sustainable development. The pathway to jurisdictional sustainability is neither easy nor quick, however. This document is intended to highlight some of the key elements of successful strategies for achieving jurisdictional sustainability. It builds upon two multi-stakeholder roundtable dialogues (January 2015 and June 2016) convened by the Forests, Farms and Finance Initiative (3FI) and recently published assessments of integrated landscape management and jurisdictional approaches.
