Policy Brief: Mainstreaming Socio-Ecological Production Landscape Management Approaches

201703 Policy Brief CoverA new Policy Brief from the United Nations University Institute for the Advanced Study of Sustainability (UNU-IAS), host of the IPSI Secretariat, provides guidance for policymakers seeking solutions to safeguard landscapes that are tied to human livelihoods related to SEPLS. The brief, Mainstreaming Socio-Ecological Production Landscape Management Approaches, is written by UNU-IAS researchers Suneetha M. Subramanian, Shamik Chakraborty, and Kaoru Ichikawa. It investigates how sustainable landscape-management techniques can be better integrated into common practice, and provides a series of recommendations for related policy and decision-making processes.

This brief was produced in conjunction with Volume 2 of the “Satoyama Initiative Thematic Review“, which collects a number of IPSI case studies under a theme along with a synthesis and analysis chapter. All IPSI-related people are highly encouraged to have a look at the volume, which provides a great deal of insight on SEPLS management practices and concepts.
