At the national level, the Trialogue approach creates a three-way dialogue between scientists, policymakers and practitioners, including indigenous peoples and local communities, farmers, businesses, civil society and NGOs.
About National Trialogues
Trialogues help strengthen the participation of key stakeholders in the assessment process, build their awareness and capacity and increase the uptake of the assessment report recommendations in Cameroon, Colombia, Ethiopia and Viet Nam. It is important to involve policymakers in crafting policy questions that are relevant to their mandates in both the short and medium term. It is also critical to understand and integrate local knowledge in order to:
- Fully include all biodiversity values in the assessment
- Understand the impacts and trade-offs of different policy recommendations in terms of their impact and appropriateness for the different local contexts
- Ensure that the proposed actions are fair, feasible, appropriate and achievable
- Engage local champions to support new approaches
