Language(s) of Evidence of Impact: 
Description of Impact(s) (English Only): 
The Brazilian Government has established a working group in the Brazilian Institute of the Environment and Renewable Natural Resources on risk assessment of pesticides to bees in Brazil and issued Normative Instruction No. 02 (NI 02/2017) that establishes procedures to look as pesticide risks to pollinators. According to a representative of the Brazilian Government, the IPBES Pollination Assessment was one of the references used in taking these initiatives - along with, inter alia, lack of a specific legislation for bees, a need to legally detail assessment procedures, occurrences of bee moralities, update to worldwide standards, pressure from society and the government itself.
