SDM is an IPSI collaborative activity operated by the Institute for Global Environmental Strategies (IGES), UNU-IAS –host of the IPSI Secretariat, and the Ministry of the Environment of Japan.

Urban-Rural Sustainability Fellowship 2022-2023
Urban-Rural Sustainability Fellowship 2022-23 is a one-year incubation programme under the Rural Sustainability Programme – APAC Initiative for Regional Impact (AIRI). Jointly organised by The University of Hong Kong, Tsinghua University, National Chengchi University, and Asian Institute of Technology, the Fellowship aims to empower and connect thought leaders and exceptional practitioners from across the Asia-Pacific region who aspire to be the Change Fellows steering rural sustainability.

The Change Fellows will participate in a series of online lectures, web-based practical training sessions, field trips and an experiential Hackathon. Fellows who have completed the Fellowship are eligible to enter into a regional prize competition with innovative rural sustainability proposals. Two free taster events are now available with the theme of socio-ecological landscape planning and management.

The Third Global Conference on Strengthening Synergies between the Paris Agreement on Climate Change and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development will take place on 20-21 July at the United Nations University in Tokyo, Japan, in a hybrid format, with both in-person and virtual participation. To participate online, please register by 18 July.

The IPSI Secretariat will organise a side event to discuss the nexus between biodiversity, SDGs, and climate change in the context of socio-ecological landscapes and seascapes.
