This chapter provides an overview of the Satoyama Initiative and findings from the Satoyama Initiative Regional Workshop in Peru, held in June 2016. The Satoyama Initiative is a global effort with the vision of realizing “society in harmony with nature”, focusing on the revitalization and sustainable management of so-called “socio-ecological production landscapes and seascapes”. A global network, the International Partnership for the Satoyama Initiative (IPSI), was founded through cooperation between the Ministry of the Environment of Japan and the United Nations University in 2010 to facilitate implementation. IPSI provides more than 200 member organizations with opportunities to collaborate and share their information and experiences. The Satoyama Initiative Regional Workshop in Peru was organized by IPSI to bring together people involved with various related activities in Latin America and the Caribbean, and to investigate issues facing production landscapes and seascapes in the region.
