As mentioned in the stakeholder engagement strategy that was approved by the IPBES Plenary in 2015 (IPBES/3/16), the IPBES secretariat would like to develop an open registry of IPBES stakeholders, who could support the implementation of the Platform’s work programme for the period 2014-2018. By engaging stakeholders, the Platform aims to strengthen the science-policy interface through its four functions (assessments, knowledge generation, policy support and capacity-building).
Purpose of the exercise
The purpose of this exercise is to have an updated list of stakeholders with contact information to assist stakeholders with their networking activities.
According to the stakeholder engagement strategy and in the context of the work programme, IPBES stakeholders will act as both contributors and end users of the Platform and will be individual scientists or knowledge holders, and also institutions, organizations or groups working in the field of biodiversity, that could:
- Contribute to the activities of the work programme through their experience, expertise, knowledge, data, information and capacity-building experience;
- Use or benefit from the outcomes of the work programme;
- Encourage and support the participation of scientists and knowledge holders in the work of the Platform.
Individuals or organisations who identify with one or more of the definitions of IPBES stakeholders mentioned above and who would like to be included in the open registry of stakeholders are asked to fill in the relevant form below.
Please note that this registry does not grant observer status to participants, as there are different rules for the accreditation of observer organisations at IPBES plenary sessions.
