meetings for new observers - IPBES-7 edition

Dear IPBES Stakeholders,

the deadline to register as observer to the *seventh IPBES plenary meeting,
29 April to 5 May in Paris* is getting closer. If you and your organisation
are interested to attend IPBES-7, you need to* register until 11 January
2019* on the IPBES website:


According to the interim procedure organisations accepted as observers to
previous plenary meetings (IPBES-1 to IPBES-6) do not need to reapply for
observer status. However, *delegates from accredited observer organisations
need to register individually and upload an official nomination letter from
their organisation*. Organisations interest in becoming observers should
indicate that to the IPBES secretariat when they register their delegates
for the upcoming plenary meeting and submit the requested information.

*Guide to IPBES plenary meetings for new observers provided by the
Open-Ended Network of IPBES Stakeholders*

A group of volunteers from different stakeholder organisations engaged in
the Open-Ended Network of IPBES Stakeholders (ONet) developed a guide
explaining the necessary steps to become an accredited observer
organisation to the plenary, provides tips on how to prepare for
negotiations and explains how decisions are made at plenary meetings. The
guide is based on the experience over stakeholders who participated in
several IPBES plenary meetings and includes publicly available information
provided by the IPBES secretariat. The first edition of the guide was
published prior IPBES-4 and it was updated before IPBES-5 and again before
IPBES-7. The guide is a living document and your feedback is welcome. The
development and distribution of the guide was kindly supported by WWF

*Stakeholder Day prior IPBES-7, 28 April 2018*

Ahead of each plenary, the IPBES secretariat convenes the IPBES Stakeholder
Day(s) in collaboration with stakeholders. The next Stakeholder Day will be
held in Paris (at UNESCO) on Sunday April 28, 2019. The agenda of the day
will be available few weeks before at: www.ipbes.net/stakeholder-events

In contrast to IPBES plenaries, participation in Stakeholder Day(s) is not
restricted to IPBES member states and accredited observers: it is open to
all interested individuals. Formal registration is however necessary to
enable follow-up on participation, calibrate the venue (meals, rooms, etc.)
and ensure security. You are invited to register for IPBES-7 Stakeholder
Day at: www.ipbes.net/event/ipbes7-stakeholder-day

With kind regards,

Malte Timpte
