Trialogues are multi-stakeholder events that focus on specific policy priorities at the national and regional levels, strengthening the culture of dialogue to promote the science-policy-practice interface for sustainable use of biodiversity and ecosystem services.
Trialogues are unique in that they purposefully include the participation of practitioners – members of NGOs, community organizations, private sector, unions and indigenous peoples’ groups. This helps include all perspectives and builds a diverse set of evidence to make decisions.
Bridging the gap between scientific, traditional and other knowledge systems, a Trialogue contextualizes research and offers a common ground for action. It uses innovative methods to build a sense of community, including learning through experience and play, relying on five senses and offering semi-formal spaces for brainstorming new ideas.
