Governance across spatial scales

The practice of informational governance across scales

Informational governance, defined as using information systems to enhance sustainability, is used in many resource domains and production chains (wood, food from fisheries and agriculture) all over the world. These systems aim to restructure practices and to change actors behaviour towards sustainability.

How do these systems evolve in daily practices? How effective are these information systems, how do these information systems influence producer and consumer behaviour? Information systems that cut across scales are interesting in particular. How do global standards influence local practices and vice versa.
