We are pleased to host the 6th Pan-European Stakeholder Consultation (PESC-6) meeting! 

The objectives and expected outputs of this PESC-6 meeting are to:
  • Introduce newcomers to IPBES (optional session organised by the Open-ended Stakeholder Network ONet).
  • Discuss collectively the First Order Draft (FOD) of Invasive Alien Species (IAS) assessment and collect comments to be submitted to IPBES as stakeholders’ perspective during the open review phase.
  • Inform participants on actions taking place at the national and regional level in Europe and Central Asia to engage stakeholders in the IPBES workplan (ECA network).
  • Present an example of a European science-policy interface (EKLIPSE).
