The Forests Dialogue Guide

A Guide to the Forests Dialogue’s Model outlines how to plan, organize, and implement multi-stakeholder dialogue initiatives. The guide draws on TFD’s experiences and lessons learned from implementing more than 90 dialogues over the past 20 years. By candidly documenting the TFD approach and structure, the guide provides tangible learnings for companies, governments, donors, and non-governmental organizations that are interested in implementing their own multi-stakeholder dialogue initiatives or learning from TFD’s experiences. For those interested in learning more about how TFD operates, the guide describes the process of maintaining strong and diverse governance, explores how TFD implements its core principles, and provides case studies demonstrating how dialogue outputs and recommendations have been used to create change.
