Call for nominations of fellows for the assessment of invasive alien species

Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES)

Further to the call for nominations of experts for the assessment of invasive alien species (EM/2018/22, sent 4 October 2018), we would like to invite Governments and relevant institutions and organizations to nominate fellows as part of the IPBES Fellowship Programme for that same assessment, which will begin following IPBES 7 and is due to be considered at IPBES 10.

The IPBES Fellowship Programme, which is part of a larger capacity-building portfolio of activities, targets early career experts who wish to gain experience by participating in the work of IPBES. Selected fellows will take part as authors in the chapter of the assessment they are selected for. Fellows will attend author meetings and receive training to gain an in-depth understanding of the IPBES assessment processes. Fellows will also be paired up with a mentor for the assessment period.
