IPBES-IPCC co-sponsored workshop report on biodiversity and climate change
In December 2020, 50 of the world’s leading biodiversity and climate experts, selected by a 12-person Scientific Steering Committee assembled by IPBES and IPCC, participated in a four-day virtual workshop to examine the synergies and trade-offs between biodiversity protection and climate change mitigation and adaptation. This represents the first-ever collaboration between the two intergovernmental science-policy bodies. IIS executive director Bernardo Strassburg was one of the participants and is a coauthor of the IPBES-IPCC co-sponsored workshop report on biodiversity and climate change, was launched on 10 June 2021.
