Rapporteurs presenting the outcomes of the Nature for Nature group

Day 4 at the Rio Conventions Pavilion explored the formulation of “Nature Futures” scenarios, based on ongoing work by the Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES). Discussion built on the Day 3’s discussions on scenario planning for transformative change. The day included:

  • An opening plenary introducing the role of scenario building approaches in informing policies and targets for the Post-2020 Strategy for Biodiversity;
  • Three rounds of 100-minute participatory visioning exercises to explore perspectives from diverse stakeholders on key drivers, and policy options for three broad ecosystem types: oceans, rural and urban; and
  • A closing panel reflecting on the results of the interactive exercises and their linkages with ongoing international processes of the Rio Conventions and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
  • The Day was co-organized by IPBES, the Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency (PBL), the German Centre for Integrative Biodiversity Research (iDiv), the National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research, New Zealand (NIWA), the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation, Australia (CSIRO), and Wageningen University and Research, the Netherlands (WUR).
