Summary

This publication is part of a publication which compiles 11 selected case studies provided by authors belonging to IPSI member organizations and covers experiences from countries in Asia, Europe, Africa and North America, with various socio-political and ecosystem contexts. Authors were asked to identify challenges and opportunities in sustaining livelihoods, social and ecological changes that have occurred and approaches being deployed to strengthen natural and social resilience in the landscapes and seascapes where they work. In addition, the volume includes a synthesis chapter that summarizes the findings of the case studies and provides overarching principles for mainstreaming for policy makers and practitioners working on the ground.
