A ‘Catalogue of Assessments on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services’ has been created to support the work of the Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES). One goal of the Catalogue is to learn lessons from both existing and on-going biodiversity and ecosystem assessment processes which can inform the future development of IPBES. The IPBES Interim Secretariat has asked Members of the Platform to add relevant assessments to the Catalogue to ensure it is comprehensive and up-to-date. In addition, the IPBES Interim Secretariat has invited feedback on the Catalogue in terms of its usability and practical application. Comments will guide its on-going development and identify ways in which it could be enhanced to further meet users’ needs.
In response to this, JNCC commissioned the UNEP-World Conservation Monitoring Centre (UNEP-WCMC) to ensure that a representative sample of relevant assessments, projects and studies from the UK and the UK Overseas Territories (UKOTs) and Crown Dependencies were included in the Catalogue; and to critically review the Catalogue’s form, function and practical application and provide feedback to JNCC. This report presents the approach, findings and conclusions of this project.
