Task force on scenarios and models: Modellers' workshop

Tuesday, 12 January, 2021 - Friday, 15 January, 2021
Event type:
Task force

The task force on scenarios and models plans the organization of an overall consultation, made of a series of events, on the Nature Futures Framework (NFF), targeted at the modelling community. The objective of this workshop is to catalyse the development of scenarios and models for IPBES by communities that develop and apply models of different types, scales and domains relevant to biodiversity and ecosystem services. The workshop will 1) seek feedback and contributions from the modelling community on the Nature Futures Framework and its methodological guidance; 2) discuss further methodological steps to enable these modelling communities to simulate quantitative scenarios of nature, nature’s contributions to people, and a good quality of life, using the NFF at different scales; and 3) discuss future collaborations between the task force and modelling communities for further development and application of the NFF to support assessments and policies on biodiversity and ecosystem services.
