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.

30 September – 2 October 2018: The 7th IPSI Global Conference (IPSI-7)

the IPSI Secretariat will organize the Seventh Global Conference of the International Partnership for the Satoyama Initiative (IPSI-7) to be held in Kanazawa, Ishikawa Prefecture, Japan from 30 September – 2 October 2018, hosted by the Ishikawa Prefectural Government.

During IPSI-7, we are expecting to share and exchange opinions and ideas on IPSI’s roadmap toward the conclusion of the Convention on Biological Diversity’s Strategic Plan for Biodiversity 2011-2020 and post-2020 processes. We hope to examine how IPSI has been working toward our objectives as well as contributing to the Aichi Biodiversity Targets. It is expected that IPSI-7 will contribute to the first draft of a publication compiling the work of IPSI in the Decade and other outputs looking toward 2020 and beyond.

At this time, registration has been opened for IPSI members only using the online registration form here. Any non-IPSI members who plan to attend, please wait for further announcements about registration. The deadline for registration for IPSI members is Monday 4 June 2018.
