Nexus assessment

Thematic assessment of the interlinkages among biodiversity, water, food and health in the context of climate change

The IPBES Plenary, at IPBES 7 (April/May 2019, Paris), adopted a new work programme (2019-2030; available here), following up on the first IPBES work programme 2014-2018.

This new work programme includes a thematic assessment of the interlinkages among biodiversity, water, food and health (nexus assessment), which will examine the interlinkages among the sustainable development goals related to food and water security, health for all, protecting biodiversity on land and in the oceans and combating climate change.

For a first overview, please consult the initial scoping document, which had been provided to the Plenary for its information at IPBES 7.
