The Assessment will provide a synthesis of available knowledge about biodiversity and ecosystem services in Brazil and its relation to human well-being. It will be a source to guide the positioning of conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity and ecosystem services at the heart of the country’s development. The document is organized along the lines of IPBES and will be the first national effort under the Intergovernmental Platform. The Assessment will contribute to the integration of scientific knowledge and public policies and productive practices, widening the interface between academia, decision makers, private initiative and civil society.
