Dear colleagues,

I’d like to forward you this last news released by IPBES Secretariat. Apologies for cross-posting.

Best regards, Pierre Commenville



Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to inform you that the Bonn meeting report is now available in all languages on the IPBES website at www.ipbes.net/plenary/ipbes-1

We wish to draw your attention in particular to the following deadlines that will facilitate the work of the IPBES Multidisciplinary Expert Panel (MEP) and Bureau during the intersessional period:

  • 28 February 2013 for submission of review comments on the conceptual framework, scoping process and possible future regional composition of the MEP.
  • 28 March 2013 for the nomination by members, observers and other stakeholders of participants to the MEP convened expert workshops on knowledge systems (likely to take place in early/mid June) and the conceptual framework (likely to take place in mid-August). Additional guidance will shortly be made available on the website for the submission of these nominations.
  • 28 March 2013 for any further comments to be received on IPBES/1/INF/5, on elements to consider in recognizing indigenous and local knowledge.
  • 5 May 2013 for the submission of requests from members, and inputs and suggestions from other stakeholders to inform the development of the initial work programme.

Additional information, including the further work to be undertaken during the intersessional process, including the full schedule through to IPBES-2 can be found at www.ipbes.net/plenary/intersessional

With very many thanks for your contributions to IPBES-1, and we very much look forward to working with you during the intersessional period to prepare for IPBES-2 later this year.

Kind regards,
IPBES Interim Secretariat
