Preservation and utilization of Noto’s Satoyama and Satoumi
In 2011, Noto’s Sotoyama and Satoumi were designated by FAO as the first GIAHS site in an industrialized country, along with Sado’s satoyama in Harmony with Crested Ibis. United Nations University was involved in providing support, helping with global dissemination of the relevant information, and carrying out various other activities.
Five years have passed since the designation; the initial action plans drawn up at the time of designation are now being revised, and the progress of the plans has been monitored. OUIK has been engaged in these activities in collaboration with Ishikawa Prefecture and the nine municipalities of Noto GIAHS Promotion Council. We are also providing advice regarding the preservation and utilization of Noto’s Satoyama and Satoumi and the establishment of a platform for resource management involving a variety of people. The monitoring of biodiversity is an issue with a particularly high public profile, which cannot be dealt with according to the marketing mechanism. We aim to develop a simple, convenient monitoring system through collaboration with Ishikawa Prefecture and its municipalities, and in partnership with the Satoyama-satoumi Meister Program of Kanazawa University.
