This project will support network activities that will enhance the impact of the ongoing IPBES Transformative Change Assessment and ensure that it will be carried out as a uniquely transformative process for maximum results. This project will be carried out independently of formal IPBES structures, yet support the IPBES Transformative Change Assessment through activities and capacity building that will: 1) build networks and capacities to maximize the impact of the assessment and 2) align activities within networks in Norway and abroad, including perspectives related to Indigenous and Local Knowledge (ILK) through conversations, workshops, and dialogues. This project will develop a strong network interested in transformative responses to biodiversity loss, climate change, and other sustainability challenges, and develop synergies with the Transformations Community. To realize the transformative potential of any global assessment calls for a strategic design process, coordination, and implementation, including capacity development within and beyond the network of researchers engaged with transformations to sustainability.
