Title: Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services
Url: https://www.ipbes.net
Publisher: IPBES Secretariat
Description: Established in 2012, the Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES) is an independent body with more than 130 member and observer states from around the world. This organization was formed "to strengthen the science-policy interface for biodiversity and ecosystem services for the conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity, long-term human well-being and sustainable development." Here, visitors can find a number of informational resources about the IPBES' work regarding global biodiversity, including policy support tools, assessment reports, and a helpful glossary of important terms. The organization's most recent reports and other updates are highlighted on their site's main page. As of this write-up, this includes their 40-page Global Assessment Summary for Policymakers (released on May 6, 2019), which reports that "around 25 percent of species in assessed animal and plant groups are threatened ... suggesting that around one million species already face extinction, many within decades, unless action is taken to reduce the intensity of drivers of biodiversity loss."
