Working groups

Mountain biodiversity assessment

Coordinators: Davnah Payne
GMBA SSC members: M. Fischer, W. Jetz
Period: 2016 -
Status: ongoing

Assessing the state, trends, and drivers of biodiversity in the worlds mountains is a prerequisite for supporting policy makers and regulators in processes of decision making. This working group aims at organizing the global mountain biodiversity community in view of performing a global mountain biodiversity assessment based on the GMBA mountain inventory. The resulting knowledge will serve as a contribution to ongoing assessment efforts performed by the Intergovernmental Platform for Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES).
