Governors, academics and experts will present advanced approaches for appropriate use and conservation of Satoyama and Satoumi, the traditional secondary natural systems maintained by farmers and fishermen for centuries, and their contribution to the revitalization of local communities.
The conclusions of the Biodiversity Governors’ Summit on the use of Satoyama and revitalizing local communities, which will be held on 19 October in Nagoya, will be presented at this event for consideration by policymakers, academics, members of business community, NGO/NPOs and citizens participating in the tenth meeting of the Conference of the Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD/COP10).
The establishment of a local biodiversity strategic vision, the implementation of forest management through a specific local tax system, and how we can activate communities which are influenced by the serious impacts of globalization and aging through the development and cultivation of Satoyama and Satoumi ecosystems will be also discussed.
Renewed and creative action on the appropriate use and conservation of secondary natural environments such as Satoyama and Satoumi and their role in revitalizing local communities is particularly timely now and will only become more crucial in a post-COP10 world.
