Project Details


A previous IPBES report ‘Methodological Assessment Report on Scenarios and Models of Biodiversity and Ecosystem services’ identified shortcomings in conventional scenario approaches for biodiversity and ecosystem services. It concluded that there is a need for new scenarios for nature to support future IPBES assessments (IPBES, 2016). After this, the IPBES Expert Group (2016-2019) was launched followed by the IPBES Task Force on scenarios and models (2019-2022).

The IPBES Task Force is supported by the Technical Support Unit (TSU). The TSU supports the task force on scenarios and models of biodiversity and ecosystem functions and services in implementing its objectives: 1) to provide support on scenarios and models to IPBES assessments, by mobilizing experts for upcoming assessments and provide input to assessments on scenarios and models, and 2) to catalyse the further development of scenarios and models for future IPBES assessments, by further developing the ‘nature futures framework’ and its methodological guidance.
