09.02.2021

To: Heads of Administrative Authorities, National Focal Points and STRP Focal Points

The Secretariat draws the attention of Contracting Parties to recent calls from the Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES), inviting governmental and non-governmental stakeholders to participate in the following processes:

  • Review of the second order draft of the chapters and the first order draft of the summary for policymakers of the values assessment, from 20 January to 19 March 2021 (Notification EM/2021/03).
  • Save the date for IPBES 8, to be held virtually on 14 to 24 June 2021, notification period from 13 Nov. 2020 to 28 February 2021 (Notification EM/2020/35).

Given the potential relevance of these IPBES processes for the work of the Convention on Wetlands and in line with Resolution XII.3, which welcomes cooperation with IPBES, the Secretariat would like to encourage Contracting Parties to contribute to these processes with special attention to matters of interest to the Convention.
