Capacity-building projects looking for technical and financial support

Institutions and organisations looking to contribute to IPBES' work on capacity-building can do so by providing technical and/or financial support to capacity-building projects directly supporting the implementation of the capacity-building rolling plan. The projects and activities listed below are looking for technical and/or financial support, and have undergone a rigorous review by the task force on capacity-building. The projects are grouped in two categories:

  • Projects and activities aligned with IPBES' work on capacity-building
  • Projects and activities of interest to IPBES and partners

Institutions and organisations interested in providing technical or financial support, or learning more about the projects, can contact the technical support unit on capacity-building on tsu.capacitybuilding@ipbes.net.
