Satoyama Initiative

  01 February 2014

At the COP 10 Meeting in Nagoya, Japan, in 2011, the parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity adopted the Satoyama Initiative. This gives special status - and money - to socio-ecological production landscapes. These are often iconic places where people are part of an agricultural landscape that has been productive and sustained over long periods of time. The Satoyama Initiative seeks to protect these landscapes and to learn from them.
