Mapping of initiatives

In this chapter we will present the many initiatives. We’ll first present the international, then the Nordic and finally the national. The aim of the description of the international ones was to obtain inspiration and experiences for the NRM. This is thus far from a full independent review and initiatives are neither presented nor evaluated in the same manner as the Nordic ones. As stated in Chapter 4, we have used a system for assessment of individual initiatives (Nordic and national). These reviews will be presented and discussed at an aggregated level in Chapter 6, but are not included in the presentation of the individual initiatives here.
