Congratulations: Kazakhstan 146th member of IPBES

The Succow Foundation is pleased to welcome Kazakhstan as the 146th member of the Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES).

Kazakhstan, a country rich in biodiversity and ecosystem services of global importance, now becomes part of the international network of governments, scientists and stakeholders for the conservation of biodiversity and ecosystem services.

In 2019, the Succow Foundation, together with the Institute for Biodiversity (ibn) and the Kazakh nature conservation organization ACBK, held a workshop to introduce and prepare Kazakhstan's membership in the IPBES. A lot of time has passed since then, and the CADI project, funded by the International Climate Initiative (IKI), has now come to an end. In the end, it's the result that counts! CADI has an impact!

The main objective of the Science-Policy Platform (IPBES), founded in 2012, is to compile available data on biodiversity and ecosystem services, similar to the IPCC of the Framework Convention on Climate Change, and make it available for political decisions at global and national level in order to identify suitable policy options.

The Succow Foundation sees Kazakhstan's membership as an important step for global biodiversity conservation within the framework of IPBES in order to jointly develop solutions to the pressing challenges of species extinction and the maintenance of ecosystem services.
