IPSI Case Study Workshop

IPSI Case Study Workshop

A workshop was held by the IPSI Secretariat along with the Institute for Global Environmental Strategies (IGES) from 25 to 27 May 2016 at the United Nations University Headquarters in Tokyo, Japan as part of the process toward the publication of the second volume of the “Satoyama Initiative Thematic Review” (SITR vol. 2). The theme of this year’s workshop was “Incorporating concepts and approaches of socio-ecological production landscapes and seascapes (SEPLS) into policy and decision-making”, covering various measures taken to incorporate SEPLS concepts and approaches into policies, institutions, economic mechanisms and other frameworks that widely influence the decision-making and behavior of people and organizations.

The objective of the workshop was to share case studies among the SITR vol. 2 authors and get feedback on their manuscripts for further improvement. Concrete proposals and examples of SEPLS approaches for policy and other frameworks, as well as practical advice on mainstreaming processes, necessary capacities, success factors and obstacles, were presented and discussed.
