IPSI member the Institute for Global Environmental Strategies (IGES) recently produced a video series based on the application of the “Indicators of Resilience in Socio-ecological Production Landscapes and Seascapes (SEPLS)“. The video series is titled “Balancing Biodiversity and Community Resilience through Production Landscapes and Seascapes”, and consists of two videos (click the links below to view them):

  1. The guardians of Ecuador’s dry forest: A story of community resilience, which is a documentary about the community of Agua Blanca in Ecuador, the situation of the community and its SEPLS, and the application of the Indicators in an assessment workshop.
  2. Biodiversity and Resilience Indicators: Communities managing production landscapes and seascapes, an instructional video containing background explanations and advice for application of the Indicators through assessment workshops in communities.

These videos were produced as a result of assessment workshops held as part of the GEF-Satoyama Project, an IPSI collaborative activity.
