The Satoyama Initiative is a comprehensive effort to spread awareness that protecting biodiversity entails the protection of both wild and human-influenced natural environments, such as farmland and secondary forest, which have been maintained sustainably over a long time. The Initiative is also an effort at thoughtful action towards the conservation and use of such human-influenced natural environments.
To further extend its reach through global cooperation, the International Partnership for the Satoyama Initiative was launched by 51 diverse organisations (126 member organisations, as of November 2012) including government, non-government and community institutions, academic institutes and international organisations, at the Tenth Meeting of the Conference of Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity held in Nagoya, Aichi, in October 2010.
