Dear Sir/Madam,

The IPBES Secretariat, supported by the task force and technical support
unit on capacity building, is pleased to invite you to attend the second
webinar of the IPBES Webinar Series. The webinar will take place
18:00-19:00 CEST, Thursday 28 April 2016. In this webinar, we will partner
with Sandra Diaz, member of the IPBES Multidisciplinary Expert Panel and
member of the IPBES task force on indigenous and local knowledge, who will
give a presentation on “The IPBES Conceptual Framework”.

The webinar session combines an overview of the main elements of the IPBES
Conceptual Framework (nature; nature's benefits to people; anthropogenic
assets; institutions and governance systems and other indirect drivers of
change; direct drivers of change; and good quality of life) with detailed
discussion on their interlinkages and the involvement of the different
knowledge systems. In addition, the webinar will touch upon how to apply
and adopt the Conceptual Framework to different types of assessments
(global, regional, thematic and methodical).
