Article Highlights Satoyama Initiative Contribution to “30x30” Conservation Target

EIC published an article focusing on the Satoyama Initiative.

On 28 August 2023, Environmental Information Center (EIC), the media department of Taiwan Environmental Information Association (TEIA), published an article focusing on the Satoyama Initiative. This global effort, for which UNU-IAS serves as the secretariat, aims to realise societies in harmony with nature through the revitalisation and sustainable management of socio-ecological production landscapes and seascapes.

The article features expert comments from UNU-IAS experts Suneetha Subramanian (Research Fellow) and Himangana Gupta (Research Fellow and Academic Associate). It explores the contribution of the Satoyama Initiative to the goals of the Kunming–Montreal Global Biodiversity Framework (GBF) — notably the “30x30” conservation target, aiming to protect 30% of the world’s land and sea by 2030. The article also highlights how the International Partnership for the Satoyama Initiative (IPSI) facilitates knowledge sharing among its members and the role of community building to support local resilience.

The full article is available in Mandarin on the Environmental Information Center website.
