Kuvaus (abstrakti)

To address drivers of biodiversity loss, the emerging understanding of ecosystem change must be connected with implementation in policy and practice at local to global scales. This means that knowledge syntheses, such as the Global Assessment of the Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES), need to be relevant and useful for a wide range of actors, including Indigenous Peoples and Local Communities. Arctic Indigenous Peoples face unprecedented impacts from environmental change and resource development, which are exacerbated by their lack of voice in planetary sustainability decision-making. This project is built to amplify Arctic voices in science-policy interfaces for the conservation of biodiversity, providing the much-needed knowledge basis to underpin success of the UN Sustainable Development Agenda.

This project is funded by Arctic Avenue (a partnership between Stockholm University and the University of Helsinki).
