The Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES) Assessment Report on the Sustainable Use of Wild Species has been carried out over four years by 85 leading experts from the natural and social sciences, as well as 200 contributing authors, drawing on more than 6,200 sources. The results were validated in workshops with holders of indigenous and local knowledge from across the world. The summary of this interesting report was approved last July by representatives of the 139 member states of IPBES in Bonn, Germany.

The report offers insights, analysis and tools to establish more sustainable use of wild species of plants, animals, fungi and algae around the world. Among its results, it shows that billions of people, in developed and developing nations, benefit daily from the use of wild species for food, energy, materials, medicine, recreation, inspiration and many other vital contributions to human well-being. The accelerating global biodiversity crisis, with a million species of plants and animals facing extinction, threatens these contributions to people. Measures to support and enhance sustainable use of wild species, and to ensure sustainable use in the future, will make direct contributions to meeting many of the Sustainable Development Goals.

Latin America is one of the most biodiverse regions in the world. The cultural diversity of indigenous peoples and local communities provides a wealth of knowledge, languages, traditions, worldviews and practices. This session aims to discuss the main results of the Sustainable Use Assessment for biodiversity conservation and indigenous communities, with special focus on Latin America. Dr. Marla Emery, one of the co-chairs of the Assessment will present the main findings of the report for the region and the implementation of SDGs. This will be followed by short presentations by Lead Authors of the report and a country focal point that will discuss the implications of the report for different ecosystems and countries as well as its potential impact on national public policies and international conservation negotiations.

This session will be in Spanish.
