Business and biodiversity assessment experts

Information on the call for the nomination of experts for the IPBES methodological assessment of the impact and dependence of business on biodiversity and nature’s contributions to people (business and biodiversity assessment) is available here

The group of experts that will prepare the business and biodiversity assessment, selected by the Multidisciplinary Expert Panel of IPBES, is comprised of experts and practitioners with outstanding expertise related to the impact and dependency of different economic sectors on biodiversity and nature’s contributions to people.  Experts and practitioners come from a diversity of backgrounds, including from academia and the private sector, and bring to the assessment process a diversity of relevant disciplines, expertise and domains. 

They have been selected in their individual expert capacity and not to represent the views of any public or private organization. The Multidisciplinary Expert Panel aimed at a wide geographical representation from the five UN regions and gender balance, within the limits of the pool of nominations received.  

Additional experts may be selected in line with the procedure for filling gaps in expertise set out in annex I to decision IPBES-4/3.
