Summary

The Stakeholder Day preceding the fifth session of the Plenary of the Intergovernmental Science-Policy
Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES-5 Stakeholder Day) was held on Monday, 6 March 2017, in Bonn, Germany.

In the morning, participants heard updates on the IPBES work programme, the IPBES communication and outreach strategy, activities of IPBES stakeholders, and preparations for the launch of four regional assessments.

In the afternoon, four breakout groups discussed stakeholder contributions on IPBES-5 agenda items, including: future methodological assessments on scenarios and models of biodiversity and ecosystem services; a scoping report for a methodological assessment of diverse conceptualizations of multiple values of nature; the review of the Platform’s effectiveness, and indigenous and local knowledge systems.
