More details on the programme will follow as we approach the conference, but for now, it is most important that you register by the deadline.

Disentangling the practice of landscape approaches

This article was published in the Sustainability Science journal and co-written by Maiko Nishi (Research Fellow, IPSI Secretariat). Researchers used a Q-method questionnaire to investigate how landscape approaches are understood and employed in 45 socio-ecological production landscapes and seascapes case studies. The findings revealed that landscape approaches share common goals of empowering local communities and preserving context-specific values, but their implementation varies depending on contextual factors.
