The fourth session of the Plenary of the Intergovernmental Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES 4) will be held 22-26 February at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. It will be preceded by two days of stakeholder consultations which will present an opportunity for interested organizations to receive updates on the work of IPBES, discuss their engagement in the implementation of the IPBES Work Programme, and exchange views on the topics to be discussed at IPBES 4.

IPBES 4 is expected to consider and adopt full reports and approve summaries for policy makers of the Platform’s first full assessments on: pollination and pollinators associated with food production; and a methodological assessment of scenarios and models of biodiversity and ecosystem services. Delegates will also consider other items arising from the IPBES Work Programme, including: capacity-building; indigenous and local knowledge systems; policy support tools and methodologies; and scoping reports for new assessments, including a global assessment on biodiversity and ecosystem services, a methodological assessment on diverse conceptualization of multiple values of nature and its benefits, a thematic assessment on invasive alien species, and a thematic assessment on sustainable use of biodiversity. Other agenda items include: financial and budgetary arrangements; IPBES rules and procedures; communications, stakeholder engagement and strategic partnerships; and institutional arrangements.
