The Intergovernmental Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES) is currently seeking policymakers and experts in natural science, social science, and/or the humanities to develop two new thematic assessments; one on the interlinkages among biodiversity, water, food and health (initial scoping document can be found here), and a second on the underlying causes of biodiversity loss and the determinants of transformative change and options for achieving the 2050 Vision for Biodiversity (initial scoping document can be found here).  The U.S. Government welcomes participation of all government and non-government subject matter experts and encourages individuals with expertise relevant to these topics to apply. If interested, please email your CV and a short paragraph (400 words maximum) about your interest in the opportunity and what you hope to contribute to Sarah Weiskopf at sweiskopf@usgs.gov by August 30, 2021
