Intergovernmental Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES)


IPBES provides policymakers with objective scientific assessments about the state of knowledge regarding the planet’s biodiversity, ecosystems and nature’s contributions to people, as well as the tools and methods to protect and sustainably use these vital natural assets.

IPBES is an independent intergovernmental body, established by Member States in 2012 to strengthen knowledge foundations for better policy through science, for the conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity, long-term human well-being and sustainable development. To some extent, IPBES does for biodiversity what the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) does for climate change. Biodiversity and nature’s contributions to people underpin almost every aspect of human development and are key to the success of all 17 Sustainable Development Goals. They help to produce food, clean water, regulate climate and even control disease, yet they are being depleted and degraded faster now than at any other point in human history.
