IBPES is now a thing

I've missed a few things during the past few months, so there is a light rain of newsy posts such as this: the Intergovernmental Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES) was established on April 21 by the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP).  It is equivalent to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), and can be found here.

Expect this to be a major global coordinating forum for biodiversity banking, REDD, PES, and all kinds of other ecosystem service development and conservation policy initiatives, churning out assessments and protocols and reports.
