The Intergovernmental Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES) is launching a call for contributions on indigenous and local knowledge, to invite Indigenous peoples and local communities from all over the world to support the three ongoing IPBES assessments:

  • The assessment of the sustainable use of wild species
  • The assessment on diverse conceptualisations of multiple values of nature
  • The assessment of invasive alien species

IPBES is asking for materials that express community-based knowledge, practices, values, needs, and/or experiences related to one or more of the assessments. Materials can be submitted in national or local languages. They also welcome recommendations of individuals, communities, organizations and networks that could engage in the development of the assessments as reviewers or contributing authors.
