In January 2016, the Satoyama Initiative published the “Satoyama Initiative Thematic Review Vol. 1”, which showcases eleven case studies from around the world that apply tools and approaches for “Enhancing knowledge for better management of socio-ecological production landscapes and seascapes (SEPLS)”.
This annual publication series aims to collect and present experiences and relevant information related to SEPLS, particularly including concrete and applied knowledge as well as policy recommendations from practitioners working on the ground. A synthesis chapter further highlights the relevance of sharing lessons learned from SEPLS awareness and management activities for the policy and academic discussion and to continuously improve activities in the field.
The eleven case studies featured in this Vol. 1 are authored by IPSI member organizations, presenting experiences from 13 countries (China, Japan, Taiwan, Philippines, Vietnam, Thailand, Tonga, New Zealand, Germany, Turkey, Kenya, Uganda and Guyana) and various socio-ecological contexts. As one of these case studies, the COMDEKS case study “Promoting resilience of socio-ecological production landscapes and seascapes in the Datça-Bozburun Peninsula, Turkey” presents the socio-economic situation of the COMDEKS target landscape in Turkey, the Landscape Strategy and its development, an outline of COMDEKS-supported projects, as well as impacts, achievements and key lessons learned.
