IPBES-4 delegates met in two contact groups throughout the day. Contact group I continued line-by-line negotiations of the summary for policy makers (SPM) of the thematic assessment on pollination, pollinators and food production. Contact group II addressed the scoping reports for a global assessment on biodiversity and ecosystem services and sustainable use, work on policy support tools and methodologies, procedures for the review of the Platform, and capacity building.

Negotiations in both contact groups continued into the night.

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).
