Thematic Trust Fund - Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services Network (BES-Net) phase II

As of: October 2020

Objective and activities

The Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services Network (BES-Net) is a capacity sharing “net-work of networks” that promotes dialogue and cooperation between science, policy and practice for effective BES management. BES-Net II will support evidence-informed policy setting, strategic planning and the implementation of transformative solutions for BES protection in 18 countries. It will also up-scale the BES-Net I support by promoting NEAs in four new countries and facilitating the triangular dialogues in some 40 countries around the new BES thematic assessments to be produced by IPBES. The activities and results of the programme and its partners will contribute to the implementation of the IPBES Work Programme and the IPBES Capacity-building Rolling Plan in partner countries. Experiences and achievements will be widely disseminated through the BES-Net online platform.
