Dear IPSI members and friends,
Greetings from the IPSI Secretariat in Tokyo, Japan. IPSI and its members continue to stay active in a wide variety of projects and activities related to maintaining and revitalizing socio-ecological production landscapes and seascapes (SEPLS).
This month’s newsletter is a relatively short one, as we hope many of our readers in the Northern Hemisphere have been able to enjoy summer holidays as much as we have. We would like to inform you that we are looking forward to taking part in CBD COP 14 later this year, and hope you will keep us informed of your plans for the meeting. We are also pleased to present a new resource directory on "Nature-Culture Indicators and Knowledge Systems", and introductions to one of our newest members, National Pingtung University of Science and Technology, and a recent case study from the Soil and Water Conservation Bureau, both in Chinese Taipei.
We would also like to remind readers that we are busy with preparations for the 7th IPSI Global Conference (IPSI-7), which will be held in Kanazawa, Ishikawa Prefecture, Japan from 30 September to 2 October. IPSI-7 will be co-organized by the IPSI Secretariat and the Ministry of the Environment of Japan, and hosted by the Ishikawa Prefectural Government. Please watch this newsletter and the IPSI website for details.
As always, we hope you will contact us to submit any new case studies or other information about your activities, or if you have any questions or comments.
