Job Summary

The Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services Network (BES-Net) is a capacity sharing network of networks that promote dialogue between science, policy and practice for more effective management of biodiversity and ecosystems, contributing to the long-term human well-being and sustainable development.
The network is supported by face-to-face capacity building activities (the BES-Net “Trialogues”), a matchmaking facility, and a cutting-edge web portal, all components being mutually reinforcing.
The BES-Net web portal provides a “one-stop shop” for policy-relevant information and learning material, guiding users through the existing sources of thematic information and methodological tools and providing access to learning material and policy briefs. It will promote dialogue around the same thematic areas in which IPBES assessments are being conducted, as well as in key areas of UNDP’s work on biodiversity and ecosystems management for development and provide interactive features for the members of the network to interact on specific policy questions.
The BES-Net Trialogues are multi-stakeholder dialogues focusing on specific policy questions at the national and regional levels. By facilitating fruitful discussions among the three BES-Net communities of policy, science and practice, the Trialogues will contribute to?addressing specific policy issues to help unlock shifts in the development trajectory of societies towards sustainability.
As a signature product of UNDP’s work in biodiversity and ecosystems, BES-Net harnesses its capacity building expertise at the country-level, capitalizes on the accumulated knowledge of best practices and challenges in the field, and brings practitioners into the science-policy arena.
In implementing its mandate, BES-Net is following an inclusive approach and collaborating with various partners.
