IPBES provides policymakers with objective scientific assessments about the state of knowledge regarding the planet’s biodiversity, ecosystems, and the benefits they provide to people, as well as the tools and methods to protect and sustainably use these vital natural assets.
On Sunday, 28 April 2019, regional consultations and the IPBES Stakeholder Day will be held. The seventh session of the Plenary will be opened on Monday, 29 April 2019.
The provisional agenda for the seventh session of the Plenary is available on the IPBES website. At this very important session, the Plenary will be invited to consider for approval the summary for policymakers of the global assessment of biodiversity and ecosystem services and for adoption the future work programme for IPBES. The Plenary will receive a report on the review of IPBES at the end of its first work programme. It will also consider financial and budgetary arrangements. An information note concerning logistical arrangements, along with the other official documents of the meeting, will be posted on the IPBES website as they become available.
