New Article: Evonne Yiu, U.N. researcher and champion of forests and sea


Dr. Evonne Yiu, Research Consultant at UNU-IAS, host of the IPSI Secretariat, was recently interviewed and featured in an article published on Sustainable Japan by The Japan Times.

The article prominently features IPSI and Dr. Yiu’s clear explanation of the importance of the principles of the Satoyama Initiative for sustainability in Japan and around the world, particularly related to seascapes and forests. It emphasises that satoyama and satoumi are fundamentally connected — what happens on land has potential (detrimental) effects on the oceans. Evonne offers ideas and inspiration for better management of activities on land and ideas to support local communities.
