workshop report cover

This workshop was part of a research project that the United Nations University Institute for the
Advanced Study of Sustainability (UNU-IAS) and the University of Tokyo Integrated Research System for
Sustainability Science (UT-IR3S), in cooperation with the Secretariat of the CBD (SCBD), have conducted
since 2016, focusing on integrated approaches in production landscapes and seascapes, with a view to
assessing the extent to which such approaches have been included in NBSAPs and their implementation.
The research project began with a review of concepts related to integrated management approaches,
followed by analysis of NBSAPs through both general reviews and an in-depth study, and the workshop
described in this report.
