The Swedish Water House (SWH) Cluster Group for Water and Forests aims to bring together Swedish expertise in forest-related water management. The group was instigated in the first half of 2014 after a seminar on the same topic, where some 40 participants from 23 organizations from ministries, government agencies, academia and civil society attended.
SWH has since taken the initiative forward and is a driving force in the cluster group formed from this initial seminar. This group brings together the Swedish resource base in the area of ”management of forest and water” to investigate how it can contribute to international development in this issue. Focali is on of currently five members together with SLU Global, Swedish Forestry Agency, SSC Forestry and Sveaskog.
SWH Cluster Groups
Cluster groups are interdisciplinary networks focusing on current critical water-related issues. The networks connect experts and practitioners from government agencies, academic institutions, civil society and the private sector in order to build bridges between research, development, policy and decision making. By gathering Swedish expertise it serves as a source of knowledge, experience and inspiration.
An important task for many cluster groups is to develop policy recommendations for decision makers both in and outside Sweden. The groups also follow and participate in international processes relevant to their respective research area. Through regular meetings, seminars and workshops, cluster groups contribute to developing the Swedish knowledge base within a water-related field and to spread this knowledge both nationally and internationally.
