IPBES: Intergovernmental Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services

IPBES will be an interface between the scientific community and policy makers that aims to build capacity for and strengthen the use of science in policy making.

The core functions of IPBES will encompass the following areas:

  • To identify and prioritise key scientific information needed for policymakers and
    to catalyse efforts to generate new knowledge;
  • To perform regular and timely assessments of knowledge on biodiversity and
    ecosystem services and their interlinkages;
  • To support policy formulation and implementation by identifying policy-relevant
    tools and methodologies; and
  • To prioritise key capacity-building needs to improve the science-policy interface,
    and to provide and call for financial and other support for the highest-priority
    needs related directly to its activities.
