National and regional platforms and networks

A range of platforms and networks on biodiversity and ecosystem services exist at the national and regional level and greatly support, in many different ways, the work of IPBES. For example, many of them facilitate the uptake of IPBES products, including by organizing uptake events for completed assessments and other deliverables, catalyse further activities based on the work of IPBES and facilitate the input of stakeholders into the work of IPBES.
