IPBES-5: 5th Plenary of the Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services

The fifth session of the Plenary of the Intergovernmental Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES 5) was held from 7 to 10 March 2017 at the World Conference Centre in Bonn, Germany.

It was preceded by a Stakeholder Day which provided an opportunity for interested organizations to receive updates on IPBES, discuss their engagement with the IPBES 5 Agenda and prepare positions on key issues.

During IPBES 5, delegates took decisions on: 

  • Capacity building, policy tools and methodologies
  • The enhanced participation of the EU in IPBES Plenary sessions
  • The scoping report for and assessment on the sustainable use of wild species
  • The dates, venues and agendas of IPBES-6 and IPBES-7
  • A "medium-sized" budget for 2017-2018 allowing for IPBES operations to continue (but not for the initiation of the pending assessments)
