Transformative change 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 will be done at a “scoping meeting” in 2020. A call for nominations of experts to assist with the scoping had been issued with a deadline of 29 October 2019 and the experts selected by the Multidisciplinary Expert Panel listed here.

An online conference to provide Governments and stakeholders with the opportunity to provide early input to the scoping process was held from 9-11 October 2019

The “scoping report” produced at the scoping meeting is planned to be made available for peer review in June 2020.

The final scoping report was considered and approved by the Plenary at IPBES 8. 

Since the selection of experts in early 2022, an online introductory meeting was held in February 2022, and the first author meeting was held in Montpellier, France from 9-13 May.
