We are pleased to invite you to the 6th Pan-European Stakeholder Consultation (PESC-6) meeting! This event will bring together biodiversity stakeholders from Europe and Central Asia in support of IPBES. You can check previous editions here.

The objectives and expected outputs of this PESC-6 meeting are to:

  • Introduce newcomers to IPBES (optional session organised by the Open-ended Stakeholder Network ONet).
  • Discuss collectively the First Order Draft (FOD) of Invasive Alien Species (IAS) assessment and collect comments to be submitted to IPBES as stakeholders’ perspective during the open review phase.
  • Inform participants on actions taking place at the national and regional level in Europe and Central Asia to engage stakeholders in the IPBES workplan (ECA network).
  • Present an example of a European science-policy interface (EKLIPSE).

Due to the exceptional sanitary circumstances and current travel restrictions related to COVID-19, the event will be organised as a virtual meeting, using the ZOOM Virtual Meeting Platform.

For Russian-speaking participants, there will be English-Russian-English interpreters to translate the presentations during the plenary sessions.
