Nominations are to be made via the online application form provided by the
IPBES Secretariat, and available here
<https://www.ipbes.net/application-form-task-forces>

This form includes a section titled “B. Details of Government/Organisation

More information is given in the below email from the Secretariat.

The deadline for submitting the IPBES online application form is 17 June
2019. *However, applicants seeking Belgian government endorsement are
required to submit their forms to the IPBES Secretariat by 7 June 15 JUNE
2019 already*.  This is because it is necessary to sift the applications
before the IPBES closing date. Consequently nominations made after this

I remain available would you need further information,

Best regards,

Hilde E.

A call for the nomination of experts to participate in the two scoping
processes approved at IPBES 7 (a thematic assessment of the interlinkages
among biodiversity, water, food and health; and 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) will be issued in August 2019.

*1- Process for the nomination of experts *All Governments and relevant
organizations or institutions are encouraged to submit nominations.
Nominating organizations or institutions are not required to have been
admitted to the Plenary of IPBES as an observer. Please help us to
disseminate this call for nominations of experts widely to relevant
institutions and organizations.

Nominated experts should have expertise - specific to the task force to
which they are nominated - in one or more disciplines of natural science,
social science or the humanities, be indigenous and local knowledge experts
or have expertise in indigenous and local knowledge systems or be policy
experts and practitioners. All nominees should have experience in working
within interdisciplinary, international and/or global contexts. Governments
and organizations are invited to nominate women as well as men with a
diversity of disciplinary backgrounds in order to ensure a balanced team of
experts.
For the task forces on policy tools and methodologies, capacity-building,
knowledge and data and indigenous and local communities, nominations are
also invited for representatives of qualified national, regional and
international scientific organizations, centres of excellence and
institutions, including experts on indigenous and local knowledge, known
for their work and expertise on issues related to the mandate of the
respective task force.
For the task force on indigenous and local knowledge, nominations are also
invited for representatives of indigenous peoples and local communities.
Please follow this procedure for nomination:

   - Nominees are invited to fill out the application form and attach their
   curriculum vitae/information regarding the organization they are
   representing, through the dedicated web portal at
   https://www.ipbes.net/application-form-task-forces
   <https://ipbes.us8.list-manage.com/track/click?u=5da0fed71c7e4399fb28ab549&id=b0170002b4&e=568f422bdc>

(To access this page, you will need to log in with your IPBES web site
login credentials or Nominees not yet registered on the IPBES web site will
need to do so by clicking on the "Create new account".)

   - The nominating Government or organization (Nominator) indicated by the
   Nominee will receive an email with a link to the nomination form and will
   be invited to approve and submit the nominations in the web portal.
   - Nominators and Nominees will receive a confirmation via email once the
   nomination has been duly submitted.

Interested experts and representatives of organizations or indigenous
peoples and local communities (Nominees) are encouraged to contact their
IPBES National Focal Point (https://www.ipbes.net/national-focal-points
<https://ipbes.us8.list-manage.com/track/click?u=5da0fed71c7e4399fb28ab549&id=22e605081d&e=568f422bdc>)
regarding any country-specific processes or deadlines and are requested to
fill out their application form by no later than *17 June 2019*.
Nominators (Governments or organizations) should approve the applications
and submit their nominations by *1 July 2019*. Early nominations ahead of
the deadline are encouraged.

   - Experts that are nominated and selected as members of a task force of
   IPBES accept the relevant conditions for this role. This includes that the
   time contributed to IPBES is committed on a pro-bono basis. Experts from
   developing countries as well as from economies in transition receive
   financial support to attend relevant IPBES meetings in line with the
   approved budget. This financial support covers travel costs and per diem
   for the days spent at the meeting. Selected experts of developed countries
   are to secure their own funding to participate in the meetings. Selected
   experts are expected to participate at least in the formal meeting of the
   task force (one per intersessional period) and may be asked to participate
   in other IPBES meetings.

*2- Offers to host technical support units*
Governments or organizations interested in providing in-kind support for a
technical support unit are invited to send their offer, using the template
provided here
<https://ipbes.us8.list-manage.com/track/click?u=5da0fed71c7e4399fb28ab549&id=c44c15fb5f&e=568f422bdc>,
to the secretariat at secretariat at ipbes.net *by 1 July 2019*.
The offer should include specific information on:

   - the task force for which the offer is being made;
   - background and relevance of the hosting institution to the work of the
   task force;
   - the administration and staffing of the technical support unit;
   - funding arrangements, including a budget detailing how the IPBES
   dedicated funds and the matching in-kind contribution from the host
   institution would be used.

Members of task forces and offers for technical support units will be
selected in accordance with the relevant decisions by the Plenary of IPBES
and applicable procedures during the 13th meetings of the IPBES
Multidisciplinary Expert Panel and the Bureau, planned for 22-26 July 2019
in Bonn, Germany. Outcomes will be communicated a few weeks after the
meeting.

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


Yours sincerely,
