Anna Holm, Land Development Manager in Botkyrka municipality, comments the TEEB-methodology that was tried during a workshop held March 9, 2012.
Ingrid Molander, Environmental Manager in Botkyrka municipality comments on the TEEB-methodology tried out in a workshop March 9, 2012.
Jan Govella, chairman of the Botkyrka local charter of the Swedish Society for Nature Conservation shares his expectations on the workshop held March 9, 2012.
The TEEB-approach and the 6-step methodology builds on a participatory process. The aim is to gather a broad representation of stakeholders. In Raseborg we had four representatives from the municpality’s department for the environment. We had one farmer and from Aronia Research and Development Insitute, where the workshop was held, came five researchers. Then there where one representative from the Finnish Association for Nature Conservation (national), and two from the Finish Society for Nature and the Environment (national). Also the funder, the Nordic Council of Ministries had a representative present.
Ideally we would have had representatives from the planning department at the municipality. Also there are many other stakeholders, like foresters, fishermen, recreational business as well as local representation from the conservation NGOs that should be part of a TEEB-process.
