• The Russian Federation is part of the Montreal process supporting the development of sustainable forest management (SFM). • The SFM concept encompasses ecological, economic and socio-cultural dimensions, all of which should be balanced and meet agreed standards. • We compare implementation concepts aiming at sustainable landscapes, such as Model Forest and Biosphere Reserve, with regular approaches for forest landscape management. • Since the mid 1990’s several international and national SFM implementation projects have been initiated in the Russian Federation. • Our case studies in the North-West Russian Federation are Komi Model Forest in the Komi Republic, Pskov Model Forest in the Pskov region and Kovdozersky Model Forest in the Murmansk region. • Learning from practical experiences supports the production of applied knowledge needed to implement sustainable forest landscape policies.
