IPBES-1, the first meeting of the IPBES governing body will open in just a few days. I am glad to share with you the position that IUCN prepared for this meeting.
For those who like to have a rapid introduction to IPBES, you can refer to the Monthly Focus on the IUCN website about IPBES at the following link: http://iucn.org/knowledge/focus/ipbes_focus/
My very best wishes for 2013, and to start with a fruitful IPBES-1...
