The Science-Policy Intergovernmental Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES) is holding its 4th session of the plenary in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. 124 countries are being represented from the five United Nations regions. Ikerbasque Professor Unai Pascual is one of the 25 elected members of the multidisciplinary expert panel (MEP) of IPBES
The National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) in collaboration with the Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES) offers one Postdoctoral position for a candidate who would like to pursue a career in international environmental policy and the multiple values of ecosystems and biodiversity.
BC3 investigator, Unai Pascual, takes part in the last approved of the IPBES biodiversity report, at a major UN conference for Biodiversity later this year. After almost three years investigating on the current situation of biodiversity in the world, the last IPBES report was approved last week in Medellin, Colombia by the governments of 129 member nations. The study aims to provide a knowledge base for global action on biodiversity, following examples such as that from the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, whose knowledge is used by policymakers to set carbon emission targets.
Unai Pascual (Vitoria-Gasteiz, 1973) has recently been appointed co-chair of the IPBES assessment into the values of nature. Promoted by the United Nations Organisation, the IPBES was set up in 2012. Its mission is to offer public policy-making bodies scientific evidence, all kinds of knowledge, working tools and other types of methods designed to improve the situation of nature on the planet, to safeguard natural resources and use them sustainably, because they hold the key to the survival of current and future societies.
