Abstract

The Project organised a workshop to launch the Satoyama Initiative National Network (SINN) for organisations and institutions working in Socio-Ecological Production Landscapes and Seascapes. The theme of the workshop was “Enhancing benefits for people and biodiversity in Socio Ecological Production Landscapes and Seascapes in Uganda. It introduced the concept of the Satoyama Initiative to over 50 participants from various institutions and organisations working in SEPLS in the country, which seeks to realise societies in harmony with nature through revitalisation and sound management of SEPLS.
