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 features two new publications: the full report from the first phase of the research project on integrated approaches in production landscapes and seascapes in the development and implementation of NBSAPs; and a recent Policy Brief on incentive systems for integrated landscape management from UNU-IAS. We also have reports from two recent events, a consolidation workshop for the "GEF-Satoyama Project", and a recent conference on eco-friendly farming in Chinese Taipei. We would also like to share one of our more recent case studies on eco-friendly farming from our partner Observer Ecological Consultant.
We would also like to remind readers of 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.
