Offers useful knowledge and lessons of SEPLS management to clarify the concept, methodologies, approaches and strategies of “transformative change,” which have been gaining increased attention but are yet to be fully and comprehensively assessed.
Provides a synthesis of key messages arising from the case studies, which will help deepen the understanding of relevance to transformative change across diverse stakeholders including policymakers, scientists and practitioners. This in turn will help further the science-policy-practice interfaces related to biodiversity and ecosystem services.
Presents a set of real-world examples of transformative change across different regions of the world, which highlight the roles, attitudes and actions of those responsible for SEPLS management in conserving biodiversity while providing other benefits and suggest challenges and opportunities for transformative change. This will help facilitate policy learning and evidence-based decision-making to promote sustainable transitions.
