Abstract After several years of negotiations, a new scientific advisory body for international biodiversity policy, the Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES), will soon be formally established by the UN General Assembly. This platform intends to fill the gap between biodiversity science and biodiversity policy, ensuring policy relevance while avoiding over-politicisation. There are great opportunities but also considerable challenges for this new organisation
