Long-term Strategy for Satoyama Conservation

  • A. Tsunekawa


Japanese satoyama landscapes are currently undergoing profound changes. In order to maintain their traditional form, it is necessary to draw up a comprehensive conservation strategy. In terms of planning theory, the strategic content can be divided into two parts. The first part is the subject of quantitative and qualitative management and conservation of satoyama landscapes. As described in Chapter 4, a decrease in biodiversity and the disappearance of rare species have been caused by a loss of the management of satoyama landscapes. Especially problematic are the satoyama coppice woodlands, where the relationship with humans has been noticeably lost.
