Main content

Biodiversity and nature’s contributions to people underpin almost every aspect of human lives and livelihoods. They help produce food, provide clean water, regulate climate, and control disease. Yet they are being depleted and degraded faster now than at any other point in human history.  

Formally established in 2012, IPBES is now recognized as the leading global authority on the state of knowledge and science about biodiversity, ecosystem services and nature’s contributions to people to inform decision-makers and facilitate better science-informed policy across scales, sectors, and knowledge systems. In this lecture,

Dr. Larigauderie will reflect on the development of IPBES, focusing on its growing role in the global science-policy landscape. She will also discuss the impacts that IPBES has had on science and scientists, on international policy, and in delivering actions for nature and nature’s contributions to people.
