This second external review is addressed to Governments and interested and qualified experts, and IPBES is seeking the widest-possible participation from experts from all relevant disciplines and backgrounds. To ensure consistency with and continuity from the first external review, those who participated in the first review are particularly invited to send comments.

If you would like to participate as an expert reviewer in this external review, please follow these steps:

  1. Register as user of the IPBES website if you have not already done so.
  2. Apply to become an expert reviewer for individual chapters or for the summary for policymakers of the values assessment (this will only work when logged in first as IPBES website user).

Once registered, you will immediately receive an email providing confidential access to the material and will be requested to submit your comments in English using a template that is available on the same webpage.
