Daily web highlights
 
In closing the day's deliberations, Achim Steiner, UNEP Executive Director, wished the meeting good fortune saying that scientists in both the “north and south have been yearning for a vehicle that can bring them into a more constructive interface with governments.”
 

The third ad hoc intergovernmental and multi-stakeholder meeting on an IPBES continued discussions on Tuesday. Delegates nominated Dusan Ognjanovic (Serbia) as fourth vice-chair and during the day reviewed options for: the function, or work programme, of a new platform; its legal basis, governance and implementation structure; funding; and need for, location and host of a secretariat. They also engaged in a second reading of the processes that a new platform should support. A drafting group on an outcomes document and a contact group on options for the processes convened in the evening.
