Västra Harg Lövskogar nature reserve and its surrounding cultural landscape in Mjölby Municipality presents an excellent case study highlighting the importance of boundaries – in the biophysical landscape as well as in its governance and use – for landscape multifunctionality and capacity to deal with changes. Central to our work is knowledge and understanding, and through it, agency.

In the Swedish case study the  ENVISION project team will develop a participatory process for building a shared understanding of landscape management challenges. Together with local actors, we will jointly explore what may constitute strategies towards solutions, how an awareness of uncertainties may influence implementation, and ways to adapt when new challenges emerge.
