IPSI Case Study Workshop (online)


An online workshop was held by the IPSI Secretariat from 22 to 26 June 2020 as part of the process toward the publication of the sixth volume of the “Satoyama Initiative Thematic Review” (SITR vol. 6). The theme of this year’s workshop was “Transformative change through the multiple benefits of socio-ecological production landscapes and seascapes (SEPLS)”, covering how SEPLS management relates to the idea of transformative change, considering that SEPLS approaches can result in multiple benefits beyond biodiversity conservation, including cultural ecosystem service provision, preservation of traditional knowledge and practices, climate change mitigation and adaptation, ecosystem restoration, and social equity and rights.

The objective of the workshop was to share case studies among the SITR vol. 6 authors and get feedback on their manuscripts for further improvement. Participants shared different opinions on the concept of transormative change, taking lessons from IPSI case studies.

The SITR vol. 6 is planned for publication later this year, and will have the same theme as the workshop, including write-ups of the case studies presented and a synthesis paper aimed at bringing together the various projects and extracting lessons learned.
