Integrated Landscape Management: Effective Approaches for Translating Knowledge into Transformative Actions

Translating conservation and sustainable-development theory into action in the real world often requires linking diverse stakeholders, all of whom may have different interests ranging from local to international levels. Integrated approaches to landscape management have the potential to bridge this diversity, allowing biodiversity and anthropogenic production activities to coexist. Within the context of the Satoyama Initiative, the term “socio-ecological production landscapes and seascapes” (SEPLS) has been coined to denote places where good management results in a harmonious mosaic of habitats and land- and sea-uses. SEPLS can meet a wide range of local needs – water, food, health, etc. – while also contributing to national conservation and sustainable development priorities and global targets such as the SDGs. Good management practices are found in many parts of the world, but SEPLS face serious threats today. This parallel session will focus on efforts to meet these threats, with the goals of sharing knowledge and fostering further action.
