During five years the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency financed a large scale research initiative called A Magnificent Mountain Landscape which included many research projects. 

This initiative was divided into two phases and Annika Dahlberg from the Department of Physical Geography, Stockholm University, participated in research projects in both, in collaboration with researchers from the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) and Mid Sweden University. These two projects were conducted in close collaboration with stakeholders and respresentatives of multiple land use interests.

The first project is called "Beyond conflicts: Understanding Challenges and Opportunities in the Swedish Mountain Landscapes", and the second "Negotiating Pathways to Multifunctional Landscapes: A Pilot Model in the Jämtland Mountains".

Results and documentation of the research process in publications and short films

Results from these two projects, which were conducted in close collaboration with other stakeholders, can be acessed here or at the projects home pages or below. 

In addition, a number of short films (links below) were produced towards the end of the second project which illustrate some of the main results as well as the research process.
