Dear <<First Name>> <<Last Name>>,

As you know it is planned to launch the IPBES “Sustainable Use of Wild Species Assessment Report” and the “Assessment Report on the Diverse Values and Valuation of Nature” following their consideration with a view to be approved at the ninth session of the IPBES Plenary (#IPBES9).

In order to ensure the widest possible reach of these launches, the IPBES secretariat has invited media organizations and journalists to apply for media accreditation to receive embargoed media materials, via email, once the reports have been approved by the Plenary.

It would be greatly appreciated if you could please identify a national communications focal point with whom the IPBES secretariat could collaborate, to ensure media reach in your country. In this regard, we would appreciate your advice as to a name and an email address for such a national communications focal point. Please send this information to

Please find below a link to the media accreditation invitation issued this week. It would also be much appreciated if you could share this link with your national communications focal point and any media contacts that you believe may be interested in such accreditation.

Please be advised that the above collaboration on embargoed materials will be additional to the embargoed materials that will be sent directly to you as IPBES National Focal Point following approval by the Plenary.

Your kind assistance in this regard will be very much appreciated.

Yours sincerely,

Dr Anne Larigauderie | Executive Secretary
