  • The thematic assessment of the sustainable use of wild species

Selected fellows will take part as authors in the chapter of the assessment they are selected for. They will attend author meetings and receive training to gain an in-depth understanding of the IPBES assessment processes, and will be paired up with a mentor for the assessment period.
