The Elgar Companion to Geography, Transdisciplinarity and Sustainability

Edited by Fausto O. Sarmiento and Larry M. Frolich

With contributions from top geographers, this Companion frames sustainability as exemplar of transdisciplinary science (critical geography) while improving future scenarios, debating perspectives between rich North/poor South, modern urban/backwards rural, and everything in between. The Companion has five sections that carry the reader from foundational considerations to integrative trends, to resources use and accommodation, to examples highlighting non-traditional pathways, to a postscript about cooperation of the industrialized Earth and a prognosis of the road ahead for the new geographies of sustainability.

Chapter 10: The Satoyama Initiative for landscape/seascape sustainability

William Dunbar and Kaoru Ichikawa


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.
