Dear Friend of IPBES,

As you may know, UN Member States decided at the Rio+20 conference, in
2012, to strengthen the science-policy interface and work to provide strong
evidence-based support to policymakers in promoting poverty eradication and
sustainable development. This undertaking aligns directly with the work of
IPBES on biodiversity and ecosystem services – but also goes much wider,
which is why the Member States mandated the regular publication of a Global
Sustainable Development Report (GSDR).

Following the adoption of the SDGs in September 2015, the GSDR has become a
quadrennial publication – the next edition of which is due for release in
2019 to also inform the High Level Political Forum for Sustainable
Development (HLPF). For the first time, the report is being drafted by an
independent group of scientists, supported by a task team of six UN-system
agencies. As part of its outreach, the independent group of scientists is
calling for inputs to the GSDR from the widest-possible group of scientific
and non-scientific communities – another powerful echo of the IPBES
conceptual framework and approach.

With this in mind, I would like please to share with you the call for
inputs to the 2019 GSDR – and urge that all of the members of our IPBES
community give very serious consideration to participating. To access the
call please go to: https://goo.gl/BHdL3b

Please also feel free to share this message with your colleagues, networks
and contacts.

With thanks and warm regards,
