First IPBES report on global biodiversity
IPBES publishes first global assessment of biodiversity
Biodiversity is our very basis of life. The IPBES (Intergovernmental Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services) global assessment of biodiversity and ecosystem services sheds light on the significant loss of species and plant diversity over the past 50 years.
By 2040, ecologically valuable areas in Switzerland should be interconnected so that exchanges within a species are ensured, migrating animals can overcome barriers and ecological services are conserved over the long term for the benefit of our society.
