Symposium on Community-based Activities and Governance for Seascape Restoration


On 9 February 2022 UNU-IAS will co-host an online symposium on community-based activities and governance for seascape restoration. The event will launch a new series of symposiums as part of the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration, in which UNU-IAS is a collaborating agency.  Focusing on Satoumi coastal seascapes, the symposium will feature speakers from Japan and abroad presenting case studies and good practices for restoring vulnerable ecosystems. It is co-organised in partnership with the Ocean Policy Research Institute and the Ministry of the Environment, Japan (MOEJ).

The symposium series aims to build momentum towards the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration for coastal ecosystems, creating a network of stakeholders for Satoumi restoration. It will share information on good practices and challenges, and identify gaps in restoration to develop policy recommendations.
