The methodological assessment on monitoring biodiversity and nature’s contributions to people (“monitoring assessment”).
At its tenth session in 2023, the IPBES Plenary approved the undertaking of a methodological assessment on monitoring biodiversity and nature’s contributions to people (monitoring assessment).
The aim of the monitoring assessment is to support national and global efforts to monitor:
a) biodiversity, nature’s contributions to people and the direct and underlying causes of the observed changes; and
b) progress towards the goals and targets of the Kunming-Montreal Global Biodiversity Framework.
Further details on the content of the assessment can be found in the scoping report. The assessment is being conducted using a fast track approach, and will be completed in 2026 and considered by the Plenary at its 13th session.
