IPBES Values Assessment - Global ESP Expert Workshops
Input to the formal review of the second order draft of the IPBES values assessment and the first order draft of its policy summary
In the spirit of inclusion and diversity, please consider reviewing how IPBES describes methods for assessing how values and valuation link people, nature and decision making.
The Ecosystem Services Partnership (ESP) is pleased to announce a global series of workshops to mobilize the global expert community in contributing reviews for the second order draft of the IPBES assessment on values of Nature.
This series of workshops is organized jointly by ESP and the Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBAES), with workshops spread through the global time zones and hosted by regional ESP representatives, but open to anybody interested in reviewing the assessment.
We are explicitly looking for expertise from members of governments, local communities and civil society who have practical, technical and/or academic knowledge.
Each of these workshops will consist of a short presentation of the values assessment and the summary for policy makers; an explanation of the review process; and an interactive part where you will be able to put forward questions and comments on the different chapters. We will collect the comments and questions arising during the workshops, and also pesent to participans the review mechanism so they can submit comments afterwards. You can find more information about the review process here.
We look forward to seeing you at one of our workshops!
