International Satoyama Intiative

IPSI, the International Partnership for the Satoyama Initiative, promotes collaboration in the conservation and restoration of sustainable human-influenced natural environments (Socio-Ecological Production Landscapes and Seascapes: SEPLS) through broader global recognition of their value.

21-24 August 2018: “GEF-Satoyama Project” Consolidation Workshop

A “Consolidation Workshop on Mainstreaming Biodiversity Conservation and Sustainable Management in Priority Socio-ecological Production Landscapes and Seascapes” was held under the “GEF-Satoyama Project“, 21-24 August in Plaine Magnien, Mauritius. The GEF-Satoyama Project is an IPSI collaborative activity with a number of components including providing support for on-the-ground projects in priority SEPLS in biodiversity hotspots around the world over the past few years.

This workshop was held “to consolidate lessons learned under the Project to generate information/knowledge products”, and brought together representatives from each of the 10 subgrant projects and other experts for in-depth discussions. It also included a session on the “Indicators of Resilience in SEPLS“, which were used in the subgrant projects, and an excursion to the project site of sugrantee Environmental Protection & Conservation Organisation (EPCO).

Outcomes from the workshop will be compiled and disseminated through IPSI’s network and other relevant fora. For more information, see the GEF-Satoyama Project website here.
