Project description:

Putting a halt to nature’s rapid decline requires urgent, collaborative solutions
and actions. Through BES-Net, UNDP, UNEP-WCMC and UNESCO promote networking and cooperation among policymakers, scientists and practitioners to jointly design and implement solutions for effective management of biodiversity and ecosystem services and long-term sustainable development. During its second phase, the project supports policymaking and transformative on-the-ground actions in a total of 18 countries through targeted seed funds. Building on the work of the Intergovernmental Science-Policy-Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES), BES-Net II also extends its capacity-building support in four further countries to undertake National Ecosystem Assessments and facilitates science-policy-practice triangular dialogues to help identify cutting-edge nature- based solutions in 40 countries. With a growing online platform BES-Net’s online channels disseminate news, events, jobs and research.
