The Intergovernmental Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES) launched a new assessment on the impact and dependence of business on biodiversity and nature’s contributions to people.
This assessment is aimed at categorizing how businesses depend on, and impact, biodiversity and nature’s contributions to people and at identifying criteria and indicators for measuring that dependence and impact, taking into consideration how such metrics can be integrated into other aspects of sustainability. To help experts understand and navigate the IPBES nomination process, Biodiversa+ organised on the 12th of October an online Webinar which was an opportunity to learn more about:
- IPBES and IPBES assessments in general
- How Biodiversa+ collaborates with the Platform
- The Scoping of the Business and Biodiversity assessment, presented by Michel Trommetter, IPBES Scoping expert
- How to get involved as an author or fellow
