Dear IPBES members, observers and other interested stakeholders,
The IPBES Plenary, at its seventh session held in Paris from 29 April to 4
May 2019, adopted “the rolling work programme of IPBES up to 2030” (set out
in annex I to decision IPBES-7/1), which includes, under its first
objective, *a thematic assessment of the underlying causes of biodiversity
loss and the determinants of transformative change and options for
achieving the 2050 Vision for Biodiversity. *

This assessment is aimed at understanding and identifying factors in human
society at both the individual and collective levels, including
behavioural, social, cultural, economic, institutional, technical and
technological dimensions, that can be leveraged to bring about
transformative change for the conservation, restoration and wise use of
biodiversity, while taking into account broader social and economic goals
in the context of sustainable development. It explores the drivers of and
motives behind broad societal changes and transitions to inform the design
of relevant policies, communication and engagement campaigns and other
actions.

*The Multidisciplinary Expert Panel (MEP) invites Governments and other
stakeholders to nominate relevant experts to assist with the scoping of
this assessment. *

The scoping process will be conducted in line with the procedures for IPBES
deliverables set out in decision IPBES-3/3, annex I (available here
<https://ipbes.us8.list-manage.com/track/click?u=5da0fed71c7e4399fb28ab549&id=7e5b47eb98&e=fe2a129752>)
and based on the initial scoping reports for the assessments set out in
section III of appendix II to document IPBES/7/6 (available here
<https://ipbes.us8.list-manage.com/track/click?u=5da0fed71c7e4399fb28ab549&id=ee13542fcd&e=fe2a129752>
).

*Importantly, nominated experts should have expertise in one or more
disciplines within natural science, social science or humanities, or in
indigenous and local knowledge systems, or be policy experts and
practitioners*. We strongly encourage nominations to reflect this broad
range of expertise and encourage nominations of experts with inter- and
multi-disciplinary expertise.  We would like to stress that expertise
beyond the natural sciences is essential for this assessment.

IPBES is seeking, in particular, experts, practitioners or policy experts
with a background and experience in social sciences (e.g. behavioural
economics, political ecology, development studies), in socioecological
integrative approaches (e.g. global change research), in the humanities
(e.g. cultural ecological research), in psychology and behavioral sciences,
in biophysical sciences (e.g. conservation biology, ecology, climate
science), in applied sciences and technology (e.g. forestry, agro-ecology,
conservation agriculture) and environmental management.

*All nominated experts (Nominees) need to be available to attend the
scoping meeting that is part of the scoping process, *tentatively scheduled
as follows: 21-24 April 2020.

All Governments and relevant organizations or institutions are encouraged
to submit nominations. Organizations or institutions wishing to nominate
are not required to have the status of an observer to the Plenary of IPBES
to make a nomination. Please help us to disseminate this call for
nominations of experts widely.
