Promote Pollinators and BES-Net webinar Part 2: experiences from BES-Net’s Regional Trialogues

Promote Pollinators is looking forward to hosting the second part of our webinar in collaboration with the Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services Network (BES-Net) on January 14th, 2021 at 15:00 CET. The webinar will focus on the outcomes of BES-Net's Regional Trialogues.

Conservation and sustainable use of pollinators requires commitment and support from all the stakeholders across sectors and organizations. Since the release of the landmark IPBES thematic assessment on pollinators, pollination and food production in 2016, BES-Net has been promoting the uptake of the assessment, using the science-policy-practice dialogue approach (i.e. “Trialogues”). The webinar will provide an opportunity to learn how the countries that have participated in the Regional Trialogues integrated the IPBES assessment findings and messages into policymaking processes, scientific research and on-the-ground programmes and projects, and how these efforts are implemented in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Representatives from a selection of countries that participated in the Regional Trialogues will share their unique experiences promoting pollinators, building on the increased awareness and strengthened network through the Trialogues.

The webinar is open to the public, and both members and non-members are invited to attend. The webinar will take 1.5 hours.
