This side event will focus on reporting findings of the “Research on development and implementation of National Biodiversity Strategies and Action Plans (NBSAPs)” project conducted by UNU-IAS and the University of Tokyo Integrated Research System for Sustainability Science (UT-IR3S) in cooperation Secretariat of the CBD. A series of comprehensive background research studies were conducted to review and analyze NBSAPs in the context of integrated management approaches for landscapes and seascapes that sustain human production activities, with the objective to identify the extent to which such approaches have been included in NBSAPs. These studies included  (i) the review of concepts related to integrated management approaches for production landscapes and seascapes including “cultural landscapes”, “Globally Important Agricultural Heritage Systems (GIAHS)” and “Socio Ecological Production Landscapes and Seascapes (SEPLS)” as developed under the “Satoyama Initiative ”, and  (ii) the analysis of the NBSAPs through two broad-scale and in-depth studies focusing on how these aforementioned concepts and measures are being incorporated and implemented under the NBSAPs. Following up on these background studies, an international workshop involving a number of Parties from different regions was held in Tokyo in January 2018 to gain insights and future examine the actual implementation process of such approaches under the NBSAPs. This side-event will report on the workshop findings, where speakers from Parties who participated in the Tokyo international workshop will share on their experience, with the objective to provide useful findings and recommendations for future NBSAP development and implementation of measures related to integrated approaches on production landscapes and seascapes.

This side event is organized for the further development and dissemination of the Satoyama Initiative, a global effort recognized by CBD COP as “a potentially useful tool…for the benefit of biodiversity and human well-being” since 2010. Developments under the Satoyama Initiative since that time have provided valuable experience in networking and coordination for implementation of the CBD around the world.
