  • Intergovernmental Science-policy Plattform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES)

IPBES-CH

In April 2012, the Intergovernmental Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES) was established, as the leading intergovernmental body for assessing the state of the planet's biodiversity, its ecosystems and the essential services they provide to society.

IPBES provides a mechanism recognized by both the scientific and policy communities to synthesize, review, assess and critically evaluate relevant information and knowledge generated worldwide by governments, academia, scientific organizations, non-governmental organizations and indigenous communities. This involves a credible group of experts in conducting assessments of such information and knowledge in a transparent way. IPBES is unique in that it will aim to strengthen capacity for the effective use of science in decision-making at all levels. Further Information at the IPBES website.

The Swiss Biodiversity Forum, in close collaboration with the Federal Office for the Environment, is organizing a national platform for IPBES (soon available on this site). If you want to receive IPBES news or are interested to contribute to one of the assessments, please send your contact details to eva.spehn@scnat.ch
