Business and biodiversity assessment events

The first step in the production of this assessment, as for all IPBES assessments, consists in defining the scope of the assessment, including the overall framework, set of chapters, and their brief content, and a timeline and budget for its production. This is expected to be done at a “scoping meeting” in 2021. A call for nominations of experts to assist with the scoping had been issued with a deadline of 25 January 2021 and the experts selected by the Multidisciplinary Expert Panel are listed here.

The “scoping report” produced at the scoping meeting is expected to be made available for peer review in mid-2021.

The final scoping report will be considered by the Plenary at IPBES 9 (tentatively planned for 2022).

An online conference to provide Governments and stakeholders with the opportunity to provide early input to the scoping process was held from 25 to 26 March 2021.
