Deliverable 3(b)(iii): Thematic assessment of the sustainable use of wild species

In section V, paragraph 3 of its decision IPBES-5/1, the IPBES Plenary approved the scoping report for the thematic assessment of the sustainable use of wild species.
In section V, paragraph 2 of its decision IPBES-6/1, the Plenary of IPBES approved the undertaking of the thematic assessment  as outlined in the scoping report set out in annex IV to decision IPBES-5/1, following IPBES 6, for consideration by the Plenary no later than at IPBES 10.
The assessment is scheduled to be considered by the Plenary at IPBES 9.
The assessment will consider various approaches to the enhancement of the sustainability of the use of wild species and to strengthen related practices, measures, capacities and tools for their conservation through such use, taking into account the multiple worldviews and knowledge systems that operate within different socio-ecological contexts. The assessment will be solution-oriented, with the overall aim of identifying challenges and opportunities to establish or strengthen measures and conditions that ensure and promote the sustainable use of wild species.
