    Abstract The “Satoyama Initiative Thematic Review” is a publication series containing case studies providing knowledge and lessons related to “socio-ecological production landscapes and seascapes (SEPLS)”. It aims to collect experiences and relevant knowledge, especially from practitioners working on the ground, taking advantage of their potential for providing concrete and practical knowledge and information as well as contributing to policy recommendations. It also includes a synthesis chapter produced to clarify its relevance to policy and academic discussion and to help make lessons learned practical in the field. Volume 3 of the Satoyama Initiative Thematic Review showcases case studies from around the world focusing on mainstreaming under the theme “Sustainable livelihoods in socio-ecological production landscapes and seascapes”. Authors were asked to identify challenges and opportunities in sustaining livelihoods, social and ecological changes that have occurred and approaches being deployed to strengthen natural and social resilience in the landscapes and seascapes where they work. Some of these experiences are very specific to certain sites, while others have elements in common, indicating similarities in drivers affecting the landscape or seascape and thereby livelihoods. Responses vary among the sites, determined primarily by socio-political considerations, but can be clustered under various broad categories from market-based approaches to integrated solutions deploying both modern and traditional practices for management and value addition.
