A global science assessment panel for biodiversity, modelled on the International Panel on Climate Change, was launched in Panama City in April. The Intergovernmental Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystems (IPBES) was agreed to in June 2010 by more than 230 government representatives from more than 80 countries. Its aim is to influence global policy by providing policymakers with scientific assessments on a range of issues affecting environmental sustainability.
