During the first session of the plenary meeting on IPBES, held from 3 to 7 October 2011 in Nairobi, participants made considerable progress in determining the platform's modalities and institutional arrangements.

The second session of the plenary meeting on IPBES finalised many of the modalities and institutional arrangements for the Platform, and adopted a resolution establishing the Platform as an independent intergovernmental body.

The second session of the plenary was hosted by UNEP, in collaboration with UNESCO, FAO and UNDP, in Panama City from 16 to 21 April 2012.
