Stakeholder Day

Taking place on Sunday, 20 January 2013, this "Stakeholders' Day" represents an opportunity for all non-governmental stakeholders interested in IPBES to informally exchange information and discuss issues related to IPBES.

Building on previous such stakeholders' consultations held prior to the two sessions that discussed modalities and institutional arrangements for IPBES (Nairobi 2011, and Panama 2012, respectively), this informal exchange will be facilitated by the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) and the International Council for Science (ICSU), and co-convened by UNEP, UNESCO, FAO and UNDP.

The overall goal of this meeting is to provide a wide range of stakeholders with an opportunity to discuss their engagement in IPBES and in particular:

  • To ensure a collective understanding and update on the IPBES process thus far;
  • To discuss stakeholders engagement in IPBES, facilitating a collective understanding of the roles and responsibilities of stakeholders in IPBES activities and processes;
  • To focus the exchange of views on the specific issue related to the admission of observers to the platform that will be discussed and agreed at the first session of the Platform's plenary; and
  • To draw out elements for common plenary introductory statement on behalf of all stakeholders.

Documents

Official Documents supporting the first session of the Platform's plenary are available on this webpage. Participants are invited to pay particular attention to document IPBES/1/4 on 'Draft Policy and Procedures for the Admission of Observers', which will be discussed at this meeting.

Information regarding activities in support of IPBES which have been undertaken by a variety of stakeholders since the last intergovernmental meeting on IPBES in Panama will be posted at www.ipbes.net/resources under the section on "Stakeholders". Interested stakeholders are invited to send relevant information to the IPBES Interim Secretariat.
