IPBES invasive alien species assessment

The external review of the second order draft of the chapters and the first order draft of the summary for policymakers is open from 15 December 2021 to 15 February 2022.

 This second external review is addressed to governments and interested and qualified experts, including scientists, decision makers, practitioners and other knowledge holders. To ensure the highest scientific quality and policy relevance of this assessment, the Multidisciplinary Expert Panel is seeking the widest-possible participation from experts from all relevant disciplines and backgrounds. To ensure consistency with and continuity from the first external review, those who participated in the first review are particularly invited to send comments.

To participate as an expert reviewer, you must be registered as a user of the IPBES website. Details on how to register as an IPBES user, how to be an expert reviewer, and all further details relating to this call, can be found on the IPBES website: https://bit.ly/32otHVB

To aid with the review, IPBES are also organising a series of workshops for various groups:

  • for IPBES National Focal Points and other Government representatives (January 19th 2022)
  • for stakeholders (January 20th 2022)

in addition to a dialogue workshop on indigenous and local knowledge and how this feeds into IPBES assessments.

It will only be possible to register for the above workshops once you have successfully registered to be a reviewer of this assessment.
