Promoting and implementing joint programming at the international level to reinforce research on the development of scenarios of biodiversity and ecosystem services

Objective

Current knowledge and conventional awareness-raising have largely proven insufficient to tackle the issue of biodiversity and ecosystems degradation. In this context, scenarios of biodiversity and ecosystem services (ESS) can play a key role both in informing policy makers and practitioners and raising awareness on biodiversity issues for the general public, as it has been the case for climate change.
By networking 27 funding agencies from 24 countries from Europe and other continents, BiodivScen aims to promote and support coordinated international research on scenarios of biodiversity and ecosystem services. It will strengthen research and research programmes coordination with the ultimate aim to provide policy makers and other stakeholders with adequate knowledge, tools and practical solutions to improve the conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity and ecosystems.
The BiodivScen objectives are to:
- coordinate the research agendas of major European and interantional research funders to agree on shared research priorities related to scenarios of biodiversity & ESS
- design and implement an ambitious joint call for research proposals focussed on the development of scenarios of biodiversity & ESS
- promote and support research collaboration across national borders and across disciplinary boundaries, in order to build capacity, overcome fragmentation and have a lasting effect on the international research community and landscape
- encourage and support dialogue and collaboration between academia and research stakeholders, and more particularly stakeholder engagement in the funded research projects, in order to increase the impact of research on policy and practice
- ease rapid and efficient uptake of funded research results by the IPBES for its future assessments, and by other relevant initiatives
- reinforce open access to data and data sharing
- prepare a longer term collaboration between all BiodivScen partners in close relation to BiodivERsA and the Belmo
