The Stakeholder Days preceding the Fourth Session of the Plenary of the Intergovernmental Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES 4 Stakeholder Days) opens on Saturday, 20 February 2016 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

The Stakeholder Days preceding the Fourth Session of the Plenary of the Intergovernmental Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES 4 Stakeholder Days) opened on Saturday, 20 February 2016 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

In the morning, participants met to hear opening statements from dignitaries. They also heard updates on IPBES and the implementation of its work programme thus far.

In the afternoon, participants were informed on the work of the task forces, and experiences from the first thematic and methodological assessments, and the regional assessments. A series of breakout group sessions then convened to discuss regional assessments, address how to best utilize the outcomes of the assessments on pollinators, scenarios and modeling, and capacity building, and prepare a draft opening statement for the IPBES 4 Plenary.

IISD Reporting Services, through its ENB Meeting Coverage, has provided daily web coverage, daily reports and a summary and analysis report from the Stakeholder Days and 4th Session of the Plenary of the Intergovernmental Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES-4). Our summary and analysis report is available in HTML and PDF.
