There are three components under the GEF-Satoyama Project. These are interrelated and mutually-informing.

Component 1: “On-the-ground demonstration”.
The GEF-Satoyama Project invests in demonstration projects in Indo-Burma, Tropical Andes and Madagascar and Indian Ocean Islands Biodiversity Hotspots to enhance livelihood, conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity and ecosystem services. Intended outcome include effective conservation management in these areas, improved conservation status of globally threatened species and protection of traditional knowledge. The demonstration projects have been selected through Calls for Proposals in the three regions. The proponents of these projects are our partners to achieve the goal of the GEF-Satoyama Project; i.e., the society in harmony with nature.

Component 2: “Knowledge generation”.
The second component focus on improving knowledge generation to increase understanding, raise awareness and promote mainstreaming biodiversity in production landscapes and seascapes. This will support the synthesis of relevant knowledge and information about SEPLS globally, through a global mapping of priority SEPLS and case study analysis addressing barriers SEPLS face. Case study analysis will address three themes: 1) how can we have the values of SEPLS recognized? 2) how can we protect and make use of traditional knowledge maintained in SEPLS? And 3) how can we improve the governance of SEPLS?

Component 3: “Capacity-building workshops and trainings”.
Component 3 will contribute to improving inter-sectoral collaboration and capacities for maintaining, restoring and revitalizing social and ecological values in priority SEPLS through workshops and training sessions. The activities will build on and enhance the on-going activities of the International Partnership for the Satoyama Initiative (IPSI); including training on Indicators of Resilience for Component 1 subgrant partners in June, 2016, back to back with Satoyama Initiative Regional Workshop for Latin America. Towards the end of the Project, a workshop to consolidate the lessons learned and experiences during the project and another workshop to amplify such learning to wider audience, especially national focal points relevant to biodiversity and sustainable development.
