Sharing Ecosystem Services Building More Sustainable and Resilient Society

by Osamu Saito

Part of the Science for Sustainable Societies Series

Sharing Ecosystem Services Building More Sustainable and Resilient Society Synopsis

Using the sharing paradigm as a guiding concept, this book demonstrates that sharing has much greater potential to make rural society resilient, sustainable and inclusive through enriching all four sharing dimensions: informal, mediated, communal and commercial sharing. The chapters are divided into two parts, one that focuses on case studies of the sharing ecosystem services in Japan, the other on case studies from around the world including in the regions of Africa, Asia-Pacific, South America and Europe. Reflecting the recent growing attention to sharing concept and its application to economic and urban context, this publication explores opportunities and challenges to build more resilient and sustainable society in harmony with nature by critical examination of sharing practices in rural landscapes and seascapes around the world. This book introduces not only traditional communal and non-market sharing practices in different rural areas, but also new forms of sharing through integration of traditional practices and modern science and technologies.
