    UNU-IAS will organize the following side event at CBD COP-13 to provide insight into how funding mechanisms can effectively contribute toward mainstreaming biodiversity through supporting actions for sustainable management of production landscapes and seascapes. This event will explore several funding models that have been established through collaborative activities under the International Partnership for the Satoyama Initiative (IPSI), from seed funding for promising local projects to combining GEF financing for site-based activities with the production and management of knowledge at a global scale.
