Reviewers sought for IPBES First Order Draft reviews

The Intergovernmental Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Service (IPBES) is a science-policy interface established to provide a robust evidence base, together with the necessary tools and capacity, to help decision makers around the world identify solutions to pressures on global ecosystems and loss of biodiversity; thereby securing long term human wellbeing and sustainable development.

Expert reviewers are being sought for the First Order Draft reviews of the IPBES thematic assessment on Land Degradation and Restoration, and the four regional assessments on biodiversity and ecosystem services: Africa; Americas; Asia Pacific; and, Europe and Central Asia.

This requires a multi-disciplinary approach and experts are needed from a number of disciplines: natural science, social science, economics, data and modelling and traditional knowledge. The importance of thorough review by leading global experts is invaluable to ensuring that the work of IPBES is credible, relevant and legitimate. 

Registration is open and the review runs until the 11th July 2016.
