Policy Brief: Landscape Approaches for the Post-2020 Biodiversity Agenda: Perspectives from Socio-Ecological Production Landscapes and Seascapes
A new Policy Brief from the United Nations University Institute for the Advanced Study of Sustainability (UNU-IAS), host of the IPSI Secretariat, provides guidance for policymakers interested in incorporating landscape approaches in national policy including National Biodiversity Strategies and Action Plans (NBSAPs) as well as the Post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework currently being developed under Convention on Biological Diversity processes. The brief, “Landscape Approaches for the Post-2020 Biodiversity Agenda: Perspectives from Socio-Ecological Production Landscapes and Seascapes”, is written by UNU-IAS researcher Nishi Maiko and Mari Yamazaki from the Ministry of the Environment, Japan. It discusses features of landscape approaches and draws out their relevance to policy processes, and also offers recommendations for policymakers and other stakeholders to take advantage of landscape approaches in achieving the 2050 vision for biodiversity, “living in harmony with nature”.
