International Satoyama Intiative

IPSI, the International Partnership for the Satoyama Initiative, promotes collaboration in the conservation and restoration of sustainable human-influenced natural environments (Socio-Ecological Production Landscapes and Seascapes: SEPLS) through broader global recognition of their value.

New Publication: Satoyama Initiative Thematic Review Vol. 3

A new volume of the Satoyama Initiative Thematic Review (vol. 3) with the theme: “Sustainable livelihoods in socio-ecological production landscapes and seascapes” was recently published jointly by UNU-IAS and IGES. The volume compiles 11 selected case studies provided by authors belonging to IPSI member organizations and covers experiences from countries in Asia, Europe, Africa and North America, with various socio-political and ecosystem contexts. Authors were asked to identify challenges and opportunities in sustaining livelihoods, social and ecological changes that have occurred and approaches being deployed to strengthen natural and social resilience in the landscapes and seascapes where they work. In addition, the volume includes a synthesis chapter that summarizes the findings of the case studies and provides overarching principles for mainstreaming for policy makers and practitioners working on the ground.

The publication will provide useful knowledge and lessons for a broad audience including policymakers, practitioners and academics working on issues related to SEPLS and interested in their wide-scale application and policy incorporation.
