Strengthen the science-policy interface on biodiversity and ecosystem services at and across subregional, regional and global levels

The aim of the deliverables under this objective is to assess the interactions between the living world and human society. The achievement of effective participation of developing countries in the processes of the Platform is central to the objective. It is expected that through this objective the Platform will accomplish an iterative strengthening of the science-policy interface for biodiversity and ecosystem services across a polycentric set of interacting governance and knowledge systems at different scales. Consequently, it is also expected that the deliverables under this objective will support efforts for the conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity at the national and international levels. The deliverables will furthermore contribute to the identification of needs for capacity-building, knowledge and policy support tools and be an arena for the capacity-building activities called for under objective 1. 

Objective 2 will be achieved through the following deliverables based on a bottom-up and stepwise approach:

  • Deliverable 2(a): Guide on production and integration of assessments from and across all scales
  • Deliverable 2(b): Regional/subregional assessments on biodiversity and ecosystem services
  • Deliverable 2(c): Global assessment on biodiversity and ecosystem services
