Using archetype thinking to upscale land-based sustainability solutions

Schneider, Flurina (2019). Using archetype thinking to upscale land-based sustainability solutions (Unpublished). In: Global Land Project 4th Open Science Meeting (GLP-OSM). Bern, Switzerland. 24-26 April 2019.

There is broad agreement that solutions to land-based sustainability challenges need to be contextualised to specific conditions and actors. For example, promising sustainable land management practices (SLM) might look quite different in tropical or dry regions. Moreover, different actors often perceive them in quite different ways. Therefore, it is often stressed that SLM practices need to be co-produced with local actors in their context. But how can this contextualised knowledge be made relevant for other places? In my presentation, I will show on the example of WOCAT how archetype thinking can help upscaling and translating contextualised SLM solutions.
