Dear  ,

I am very pleased to announce the release today of the electronic laid-out versions of the Summaries for Policymakers (SPM) of both the IPBES Methodological Assessment of Scenarios & Models of Biodiversity & Ecosystem Services as well as on Pollinators, Pollination and Food Production.

The SPM on scenarios may be accessed/downloaded from the IPBES website at: http://goo.gl/LcrpbE The printed version was officially released today at an event in Montpellier, France. The media release from the event today is also available here: http://goo.gl/dUJeDt


The SPM on pollinators may be accessed/downloaded from the IPBES website at: http://goo.gl/eTDu9S


As you may recall, both SPMs were approved by the IPBES Plenary in Malaysia in February this year.

I would like to take this opportunity to once again thank our assessment co-chairs, as well as every expert who contributed to these very important IPBES outputs.   

Your assistance in sharing the SPMs – especially with relevant policymakers in your respective networks and countries – would be greatly appreciated.

Best regards,
