Parts of Europe and Central Asia – an enormous region stretching from Iceland to Russia’s far east — are so developed and densely populated that much of their native biodiversity has been lost. Yet some of these States lead the world in policies that promote conservation and restoration, recognizing the fundamental links between biodiversity, nature’s contributions to people and human well-being.
The Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES) assessment reports provide the credible peer-reviewed information needed for informed decision-making.
‘Hot Topics’ in the IPBES Assessment Report for Europe and Central Asia Include:
- Valuation of nature’s contributions to people and wellbeing, including the role of biodiversity
- Transboundary ecological footprint
- Biodiversity trends across ecosystem types and taxa
- Direct and indirect drivers underlying biodiversity change-
- Integrated future scenarios and pathways
- Progress towards Aichi Targets and implication for the SDGs
- Options for decision makers
The assessment report covers three subregions: Central and Western Europe, Eastern Europe and Central Asia, with a wide range of economic, social and political development, as well as very different levels of political and financial commitment to policies on biodiversity and nature’s contributions to people. Pressures on ecosystems vary, too, with some subregions growing, both economically and in terms of their population, significantly faster than others.
The large number of States within the region also creates many transboundary issues such as water quality and quantity, fisheries, climate change, air pollution and migratory species.
The assessment report will also examine Europe’s long experience with policies such as green certification, environmental labelling, offsetting, green infrastructure and payments for environmental services, experience which puts the region in an excellent position to learn lessons and assess trade-offs and costs.
