Established in 2012 by UN member States from around the world, IPBES is an independent body in a collaborative partnership with four UN agencies: UN Environment, UNDP, UNESCO and FAO. With 126 countries now members of IPBES, it is often compared to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) because of its mission to assess available knowledge from multiple disciplines to better inform decision-making in response to requests from member States. IPBES aims to become the leading scientific body for assessing the state of the planet’s biodiversity and ecosystems, as well as the essential contributions they make to people.
