Dear Stakeholder Forum on IPBES,

 

Some of you might find of interest the latest article by Carsten Neßhöver et al. on “Improving the Science-Policy Interface of Biodiversity Research Projects”, published in GAIA – Ecological Perspectives for Science and Society 2/2013.

 

Short abstract of the article reads:  

 

“Against the background of a continuing biodiversity loss there is a strong need to improve the interfaces between science and policy. Many approaches for such interfaces exist, the most recent being the Intergovernmental Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES). A less prominent approach to interface science with policy consists of research projects directly linking with decision makers. Here we present insights and recommendations on how to do this successfully, highlighting among others the role of facilitating mutual learning and enhancing interface expertise in institutions.”

 

The article can be accessed for free until 22 July 2013; further details below.

 

Kind regards,

Anete Berzina

Dear list members, 

The loss of biodiversity calls for direct interaction between science and society. Often undervalued, the science-policy-interfaces of research projects foster the exchange of knowledge and perspectives. In their article “Improving the Science-Policy Interface of Biodiversity Research Projects”, Carsten Neßhöver et al. present insights and recommendations on how to improve these interfaces by highlighting, among others, the role of facilitating mutual learning and enhancing interface-expertise in institutions. The article has recently been published in GAIA – Ecological Perspectives for Science and Society 2/2013It is open access and can be downloaded via IngentaConnect at www.ingentaconnect.com/content/oekom/gaia/2013/00000022/00000002/art00008
