This guidance supports practitioners, from the INTERLACE project
and beyond, who are implementing activities related to ecosystem
restoration and need to ensure inclusive, transparent and fair
stakeholder participation, as well as the project coordinator whose
task is to stablish a monitoring of cultural, gender and ethical issues
within the project. Therewith, this document provides clear guidance
to facilitate inclusive approaches and explains a set of key topics
which allow to better understand and control the cultural, gender
and ethical concerns. While there is a large body of research on this
topic, this guidance will synthesize existing knowledge from research
and practitioners and provide tailored guidance for both the EU and
CELAC regions. The guidance will contribute to Task 1.4 (stakeholder
engagement strategy) and in particular to the stakeholder evaluation
form, feed into the Innovation Hub (Task 5.2) and ensure that project
partners facilitate an inclusive participation of relevant stakeholders
for all project activities and in particular for the co-production process
(WP2 and WP3), engagement programmes (WP5) and public events.
The application of the guidance will be monitored in Task 6.4.
