Transformative Actions for a Nature-positive Society from Satoyama Initiative towards 2030
Date/Time: 2 December 2022 / 14:00 – 15:00 JST
The IPSI Secretariat will co-organise a thematic track session, “Transformative Actions for a Nature-positive Society from SATOYAMA Initiative towards 2030“, at the 2022 International Forum for Sustainable Asia and the Pacific (ISAP). The online session will focus on how to effectively translate theories on biodiversity conservation and restoration into practice and their contributions to the post-2020 global biodiversity framework (GBF). It will also feature the Satoyama Development Mechanism (SDM), a seed funding programme under the International Partnership for the Satoyama Initiative (IPSI) that has been implemented since 2013. The fund has supported IPSI member organisations to implement projects to promote, conserve, or restore socio-ecological production landscapes and seascapes (SEPLS).
This event is co-organised by the Institute for Global Environmental Strategies (IGES) and the United Nations University Institute for the Advanced Study of Sustainability (UNU-IAS), host of the IPSI Secretariat.
This event will be held in English.
To participate online, please register in advance.
