Recrutement et stage

Technical support unit of IPBES thematic assessment on sustainable use of wild species

The Foundation for research on biodiversity (FRB) was created in 2008. It gathers public research institutions, environmental NGOs, land and genetic resources managers and the private sector. It provides a forum where science meets society in order to address the current challenges related to biodiversity research.
The Foundation participates actively to the IPBES process, acting as the secretariat of the French Committee for IPBES. As such, it supports the mobilization of French experts to contribute to IPBES work, supports the state’s representatives at IPBES plenaries and disseminate IPBES results to various stakeholders at the national level. FRB also contributes directly to IPBES capacity-building programme, implementing activities related to national governance on biodiversity and participation to IPBES, mostly to French-speaking African countries.
In 2018, FRB, supported by the French Agency for Biodiversity, was selected by IPBES to host the technical support unit (TSU) of IPBES assessment on sustainable use of wild species in Montpellier, France.

 

Main role and duties

Under the direct supervision of the Head of the TSU and in close collaboration with the rest of the TSU (2 people), IPBES main Secretariat in Bonn, Germany, and the expert group, the science officer will be in charge of technical support to the expert group, including:
- compiling literature and managing references used by the expert group for the assessment;
- ensuring all permissions and copyrights are respected when supplementary material is used;
- compiling and editing text produced by authors from the expert group in time for the reviews of the assessment by peers, Governments and stakeholders;
- supporting the drafting of the first order draft of the Summary for Policymakers (SPM), and the SPM as a working document for the approval in plenary session, so as to ensure the most relevant drafting for an audience of decision-makers;
- supporting the design and production of figures for the assessment and its SPM, as needed;
- supporting the filling of gaps in expertise, as identified by the co-chairs and coordinating lead authors of the assessment, by involving additional experts, in line with IPBES rules of procedures;
- supporting the TSU programme officer to organize expert group meetings.
