The Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services Network (BES-Net) aims to build capacity and commitment for biodiversity action across the world by translating the latest Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES) products into action for biodiversity and conservation on the ground. BES-Net is jointly implemented by UNDP, UNEP-WCMC (hosting the National Ecosystem Assessment Initiative) and UNESCO (providing technical support on indigenous and local knowledge since 2020), and it is funded by the Government of Germany (through the International Climate Initiative) and SwedBio.
Pooling the strengths of three UN agencies and a network of over 100 organizations from around the world, BES-Net’s consortium offers a platform for sharing solutions, meeting experts and building evidence for more resilient ecosystems.
