    Biodiversity conservation in rural areas depends on the intricate and dynamic balance between the maintaining of natural capital and its sustainable use for agricultural activities. However, facing aging and depopulation pressures, biodiversity conservation in rural areas of Japan is in need of a strategized multi-stakeholder governance approach in which the efforts taken could be assessed based on measurable results to ensure sustainability. The research project will develop a comprehensive results-oriented method for periodical monitoring and evaluation of activities taken to conserve biodiversity and for its sustainable use through multi-stakeholders governance approach in the socio-ecological productive landscapes and seascapes (SEPLS) in Japan.
