Currently, BES-Net works with over 100 Network Partners – like-minded organizations and initiatives focused on different aspects of biodiversity and ecosystems services at the global, regional and national levels.

Our Partners

BES-Net leverages its participatory methodology to bring together diverse stakeholders to co-create shared knowledge and promote the integration of scientific findings into policy and practice. This inclusive approach gives voice to indigenous peoples and local communities, women and girls, ensuring that no one is left behind during the decision-making process. Our partners are involved in various parts of our BES-Net’s work and contribute to our website, newsletter and online channels with their latest research, achievements and news.
