Assessment report on the sustainable use of wild species

Thematic assessment of the sustainable use of wild species

The IPBES Assessment Report on the Sustainable Use of Wild Species is the result of four years of work by 85 leading experts from the natural and social sciences, and holders of Indigenous and local knowledge, as well as 200 contributing authors, drawing on more than 6,200 sources. It was specifically requested by, among others, the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES). It also has immediate relevance to the work of the Convention on Biological Diversity.
