    Abstract The COMDEKS Programme builds on UNDP’s experience in local environment and development interventions from the past three decades. Recognizing the critical role local initiatives play in biodiversity conservation and ecosystem protection, COMDEKS has been implemented since 2011 in 20 target landscapes and seascapes around the world as a community-based model of landscape management to enhance the resilience of local ecosystems, protect biodiversity, and support sustainable livelihoods of rural communities. As a flagship effort of the International Partnership for the Satoyama Initiative (IPSI), a global platform aiming to facilitate and accelerate the implementation of activities under the Satoyama Initiative, COMDEKS initiatives have generated key lessons on community-based best practices to maintain and rebuild multipurpose landscapes and seascapes. Such community-based action is vital to achieve “societies in harmony with nature,” the vision of the Satoyama Initiative and a principal theme of the Strategic Plan for Biodiversity 2011-2020. This booklet highlights the many ways in which community-driven initiatives have conserved biodiversity and improved rural livelihoods through an integrated landscape management approach. Disseminating and applying these best practices more widely in rural communities will make tangible contributions to achieving the goals of the Strategic Plan for Biodiversity 2011-2020, including the Aichi Biodiversity Targets, as well as the SDGs.
