The IPBES Secretariat, supported by the task force and technical support unit on capacity-building, has launched the IPBES Webinar Series to further strengthen the capacities of those involved in or wanting to learn more about the work of the Platform. 
The fourth webinar in this series is scheduled for 9 August from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. CEST. Professor Patricia Balvanera, Coordinating Lead Author of Chapters I and II of the IPBES Values Guide, will present the major concepts of the Guide relating to varied conceptualizations of value, as well as offering perspectives on the step-by-step approach that it proposes. The webinar will be mainly aimed at the authors of the regional and thematic IPBES assessments, and those involved in any step of the production of the assessments (experts, reviewers, collaborators and TSUs). The presentation will also be relevant for those interested in understanding the IPBES approach on diverse values and those working with topics related to ecosystem services and valuation processes.
