9 The aim of the study To find out whether different sources of livelihood can be practiced in a sustainable way in the same area at the same time. To develop sustainable practices, methods and alternatives that promote the integration of different forms of forest use in northernmost Finnish Lapland.

10 Timetable and sub-projects 1 Economic importance of livelihoods M. Hyppönen 2 Cultural importance of livelihoods S. Tuulentie M. Jokinen V. Hallikainen 3 Relationships between forestry and reindeer herding T. Helle 4 Sustainability of livelihoods A. Naskali M. Hyppönen Pilotphase 5 Sustainable production strategies M. Varmola A. Ahtikoski Advisory group from stakeholders

11 Multidiciplinary methods Great variety of methods were used in the analyses of ecological, economic, sociological, and cultural studies: - general and generalized linear modelling, - input-output analyses, - qualitative interviews, - inquiries, - simulations (Motti-simulator), and - multi-criteria decision support (HIPRE) methods.

12 Production model alternatives The alternate production models were based on different areal cutting levels: m 3 year m 3 year m 3 year and m 3 year m 3 year -1.

21 Results The project produced new information about the relationships of the livelihoods, local economic effects of the livelihoods, factors affecting sustainability of the livelihoods, the opinions of the inhabitants, tourists, and stakeholders The project generated instruments usable in corresponding conflict situations.

22 Conclusions 1 - Well-executed interactive and participatory planning of natural resources is, in spite of its problems and weaknesses, a good and necessary means for resource management. - Shortcomings in knowledge exists a lot. - Multi-criteria decision analysis is a useful approach to evaluate the economic, ecological, social, and cultural aspects of the intense conflict. - Forest management treatments which lessen disadvantages to reindeer herding should be further studied and developed.

23 Conclusions 2 Achievement of consensus is worth reaching from the viewpoints of diversity of livelihoods, local economy and inhabitants communality. Forests in Upper Lapland can be used in a sustainable way taking into account different livelihoods, Sámi culture, biological diversity, and recreation possibilities. The achievement of consensus prevails in that the sides of conflicting parties are willing to compromise.
