Second global assessment of biodiversity and ecosystem services
The second global assessment of biodiversity and ecosystem services.
At its tenth session in 2023, the IPBES Plenary approved a scoping process for a second global assessment of biodiversity and ecosystem services (second global assessment).
The second global assessment will be broadly similar in scope to the first global assessment while building on it to avoid repetition or unnecessary duplication. The initial scoping report is set out in annex II of document IPBES/10/10 (available here). The final scoping report will be presented to the Plenary for consideration at its 11th session in 2024. The assessment is planned to be prepared between the 11th and 15th sessions of the Plenary, and would be considered by the Plenary in 2028.
