The Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES) is calling for nominations to participate to its workshop on modelling Nature Futures Scenarios.

IPBES is looking for experts to contribute to its workshop on modelling Nature Futures Scenarios, taking place online from 12 to 15 January 2021. The objectives of this workshop are to introduce the Nature Futures Framework and help catalyze the development of scenarios and models for IPBES by communities that develop and apply models of different types, scales and domains relevant to biodiversity and ecosystem services.

Interested experts wishing to be nominated by a Government are encouraged to contact their IPBES National Focal Point regarding any country-specific processes or deadlines, and are requested to fill out their application form by 9 November 2020. Nominators (Governments or organizations) should approve the applications and submit their nominations by 16 November 2020. Organizations or institutions are also invited to make a nomination by 16 November.

All nominated experts will need to be available for the full duration of the online workshop, scheduled from 12 to 15 January 2021 and are expected to participate in the possible physical workshops later in 2021.
