Second IPBES Pan-European stakeholder meeting (PESC-2)

IPBES: Intergovernmental Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services

The meeting is organised by the Swiss Biodiversity Forum with the support of the Swiss Federal Office for the Environment (FOEN), and in collaboration with the Belgian Biodiversity Platform as well as other European IPBES Platforms from Germany, France, and the UK. The meeting builds on the first IPBES Pan-European Stakeholder Consultation, which was successfully held in Leipzig in July 2013. A broad engagement of scientific experts, local knowledge holders, policy makers and NGOs will be crucial in making IPBES a success.

The meeting therefore aims to:

  • inform on the IPBES process, and how to participate in the current work programme (day 1)
  • discuss and give input to the forthcoming IPBES Regional assessment of Europe and Central Asia (day 1 & 2)
  • contribute to the mobilisation of experts and stakeholders across the Pan-European and Central Asian region (day 1 & 2)
