Researchers use IPBES Values Assessment to Review Tropical Peatlands Using Multifunctional 'Scape Approaches

A new paper drawing on IPBES science, particularly the IPBES Values Assessment and the 2019 IPBES Global Assessment, examines approaches to improve sustainable management outcomes of intact ecosystems at scale, reviewing tropical peatlands to explore the potential of multifunctional ‘scape approaches. tThe authors argue that only transformative change, which involves a fundamental, system-wide reorganization, can reverse biodiversity loss and meet globally agreed development goals.

The article recommends further work to deepen understanding of the multidimensional ‘value’ of nature, strengthen governance frameworks, empower indigenous peoples, align nature-positive and climate-positive goals, and mobilize business and financial support to achieve sustainable ecosystem management.
