6 New IPSI Collaborative Activities Endorsed
IPSI Collaborative Activities are activities carried out by at least two IPSI members (possibly in collaboration with other organizations), and approved as such by the IPSI Steering Committee. At its its meeting this month, the IPSI Steering Committee approved the proposals for 6 new IPSI Collaborative Activities, bringing the total number of IPSI Collaborative Activities to 46.
The new activities are:
• SATO-UMI-YAMA Project: Environmental Education and Public Awareness on Biodiversity Conservation in Asia Pacific Region – by Japan Environmental Education Forum (JEEF), Birdlife International, and Conservation International
• 2018 International Symposium on Resilience of SEPL – by the Soil and Water Conservation Bureau (SWCB) of Chinese Taipei and SWAN International
• Development and sharing of multimedia learning resources for Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) on Satoyama – by University of the Philippines Open University and Kanazawa University
• Enhancing the knowledge and adoption of IPSI protocols by district assemblies governing the Kakum Conservation Area – by Conservation Alliance International, A Rocha Ghana and the Ghana National Biodiversity Committee
• Promoting and Enhancing the Karen Indigenous Sustainable Socio-ecological Production System in Northern Thailand – by Inter Mountain Peoples Education and Cultural in Thailand Association (IMPECT), Indigenous Knowledge and Peoples Foundation (IKAP), the Forest Peoples Programme and Conservation International
• Improvement of the livelihoods of the communities through the sustainable management of productive landscapes and biodiversity conservation in mangrove (Estuaries Chone and Portoviejo), the dry forest (Cordillera del Balsamo) and rainforest (Comune Playa de Oro), Ecuador – by Social Development and Research Foundation (FIDES) and Conservation International
We look forward to providing more information on the individual activities as it becomes available.
IPSI members are encouraged to propose any activities carried out in collaboration with other members as IPSI Collaborative Activities. This is a great opportunity to gain more attention for your activities and to improve IPSI’s functioning as a partnership, as well as to improve SEPLS management through knowledge sharing. Please contact the IPSI Secretariat if you have any activities that may be potential IPSI Collaborative Activities.
More information on IPSI Collaborative Activities is available on the IPSI website here.
