IPBES Webinar Series – Webinar 1: The IPBES Assessment Process

The IPBES task force and technical support unit on capacity-building are pleased to invite you to watch the recorded webinar in the pilot of the IPBES Webinar Series.

The webinar  “The IPBES Assessment Process” from 7 April 2016 is now online here.

In this webinar, the IPBES task force and technical support unit partnered with Ivar Baste, IPBES Bureau member and co-chair of the IPBES task force on capacity-building.

The session provides valuable input to those already involved in, or wanting to learn more about, IPBES assessments. The webinar combines an overview of the four stages of the assessment process (exploratory, design, implementation, and communication and outreach) with detailed discussion on key topics within each stage.

Key topics covered include: getting started as an author and assessing materials; handling the review process; identifying and accessing data and other knowledge sources; and dealing with knowledge gaps.
