As Scientists4Future NL we are not only covering climate change in the strict sense but explicitly aim for an interdisciplinary approach to the related problems like the biodiversity crisis. We therefore would like to highlight the Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES), an independent intergovernmental body (like the IPCC), established by states 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. See for a overview of IPBES this paper.
One important achievement of IPBES is the establishment of a conceptual framework (Díaz et al. 2015)
This framework acts a guideline for all activity of IPBES, but also as a kind of Rosetta stone that supports communication between contributors from different disciplines or cultural backgrounds.
Another key idea is the concept of Transformative change, nicely explained by Laura Pereira in this talk and in this and this paper.
Finally, Luthando Dziba, Co-Chair of the IPBES Multidisciplinary Expert Panel (MEP), offers a message from the MEP to the wider IPBES community and explicitly invites scientists to use the IPBES assessments and contribute to the new one’s coming up.
