Participants huddle outside the plenary room on the second day of Stakeholder Days.

On Sunday, 21 February 2016, participants gathered for the second and final day of the Stakeholder Days preceding the Fourth Session of the Plenary of the Intergovernmental Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES-4 Stakeholder Days). 

In the morning, they heard a presentation on arrangements for stakeholder participation during the IPBES Plenary and discussed the creation of an open-ended inclusive network of IPBES stakeholders, the experience of Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services Network (BES-Net), and challenges in bridging existing networks.

In the afternoon, participants discussed in breakout groups: how to enhance the engagement of indigenous people and local communities (IPLC); the procedure for the review of the Platform; linking existing networks to the IPBES Stakeholder network; and stakeholder coordination. Participants then gathered to hear report backs from the breakout groups and discuss the Stakeholders Statement for the opening plenary of IPBES-4. Participants then heard closing statements from dignitaries.

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.
