Dear IPBES members, observers and other interested stakeholders,

I am pleased to inform you that the eleventh session of the IPBES Plenary (IPBES 11) will be held from 10 to 16 December 2024 in Windhoek, Namibia

IPBES 11 will be preceded by regional consultations and a Stakeholder Day on 9 December 2024. Further information on these events will follow in due course.

At IPBES 11, the Plenary will consider, among other items, the thematic assessment of the interlinkages among biodiversity, water, food and health (nexus assessment), the thematic assessment of the underlying causes of biodiversity loss and the determinants of transformative change and options for achieving the 2050 Vision for Biodiversity (transformative change assessment) as well as the scoping report for the second global assessment on biodiversity and ecosystem services. 

Considering the experience acquired in the preparation for past sessions of the Plenary a preparatory process will be organized to allow for refinement of documentation and informal consultations prior to IPBES 11. 

Further information on the preparatory process as well as information on the registration process and meeting documentation will be shared in due course.

I thank you for your continued support to IPBES.

Dr Anne Larigauderie | Executive Secretary
Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES)
