  2. 2. Outline of presentation 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. Purpose and benefits of using the indicators Users of the indicators Structure of the toolkit Practical guidance for using the indicators How to utilize the results of the resilience assessment Case studies on good practices
  3. 3. 1. Purpose and benefits of using the indicators Main purpose of the indicators: • Assisting communities in developing resiliencestrengthening strategies that encourage local innovation, ecosystem protection, and beneficial interactions between different landscape components Benefits: • Understanding the resilience of SEPLS • Supporting development of resilience -strengthening strategies • Enhancing communication among relevant stakeholders • Empowering local communities

Structure of the toolkit Section Content 1 Introduction: purpose, benefits, users and working definition of SEPLS and resilience 2 List of resilience indicators 3 Practical guidance for using the indicators 4 5 How to utilize the results of indicator assessment for participatory landscape strategy development Selection of case studies reflecting good practices and benefits of using the indicators
  6. 6. 4. Practical guidance for using the indicators Purpose • Providing users of the resilience indicators with concrete steps on how to apply the resilience indicators of socio-ecological production landscape and seascape (SEPLS)
  7. 7. 4. Practical guidance for using the indicators Designing phase • Designing resilience assessment process such as purpose of the assessment, target areas, resources, facilitators etc. • Preparing assessment workshop such as its style, participants, initial consultation, the PreAssessment customization of indicators etc. phase • Conducting the assessment workshop such as introduction, assessment, capturing and presenting Assessment the data, discussion, next steps and follow-up actions phase
