further development of scenarios and models by the broader scientific
community for future IPBES work.

EM/2018/31


*Call for nomination of fellows for the development of scenarios on nature
and its contributions to people, by 15 January 2019*


Dear IPBES members, observers and other interested stakeholders,

I have the pleasure to invite nominations from Governments, relevant
institutions and organizations for early career fellows, in the context of
the IPBES Fellowship Programme, to support the IPBES expert group dedicated
to scenarios and models of biodiversity and ecosystem services.

The IPBES Fellowship Programme is part of a larger capacity-building
portfolio of activities, and targets early career experts who wish to gain
experience by participating in the work of IPBES (please see here
<https://ipbes.us8.list-manage.com/track/click?u=5da0fed71c7e4399fb28ab549&id=0591dff7c3&e=fe2a129752>
for more information on IPBES capacity-building activities).

The work would build on the IPBES methodological assessment of scenarios
and models of biodiversity and ecosystem services approved by the IPBES
Plenary in 2016 (please see here
<https://ipbes.us8.list-manage.com/track/click?u=5da0fed71c7e4399fb28ab549&id=889ce3ef1e&e=fe2a129752>),
and aims to catalyse further development of scenarios and models by the
broader scientific community for future IPBES work (decision IPBES-5/1).

The IPBES expert group on scenarios and models for biodiversity and
ecosystem services has held several consultations over the course of
2017-18 to develop a new set of positive scenarios on the future of nature
and its contributions to people. This process brings together a wide range
of stakeholders at multiple scales, including representatives of the
scientific community, international institutions, governments, the private
sector, indigenous peoples and local communities, and non-governmental
organisations. These stakeholders are invited to discuss alternative
visions for the future of nature and its contributions to people, as well
as possible pathways for these visions. The expert group will analyse these
inputs in an iterative manner and at multiple scales, using a wide array of
knowledge and evidence, from quantitative modelling to indigenous and local
knowledge.

The selected fellows will support the expert group on scenarios and models
in this consultative process and in producing reports and scientific
papers. Fellows will be given the opportunity to attend workshops, starting
with the stakeholder consultation workshop scheduled in April 2019, and,
depending on the capacity building programme for 2019, may receive training
on the IPBES assessment processes. This fellowship will initially be until
the end of 2019, with the possibility of an extension subject to the
outcomes of the seventh session of the IPBES Plenary (#IPBES7).

For an effective implementation of these deliverables, it is critical to
include fellows from various natural and social scientific disciplines and
from different knowledge systems, including indigenous and local knowledge
systems, as well as policy and technical experts and practitioners.
Nominations from a broad range of organizations/institutions are thus
encouraged.

More information on the nomination process is included in the annex below.

Interested candidates (nominees) are requested to fill out their
application form *no later than 15 January 2019*. Nominators
(Governments/organisations/institutions) should submit nominations by *22
January 2019 at the latest.* Earlier nominations are strongly encouraged.

I thank you in advance for your nominations and your continued support to
IPBES.

Yours sincerely,

*Anne Larigauderie* | Executive Secretary
Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem
Services

*Support *
This is an unpaid fellowship scheme. Selected fellows are expected to work *pro

the assigned tasks considered as in-kind contribution and not remunerated.
Expenses for attending one meeting each year will be covered for selected
fellows from developing countries and countries with economies in
transition in accordance with UN rules. Selected fellows from developed
countries are expected to cover their own expenses and are encouraged to
seek support from their home institutions.
