One in eight animal and plant species is threatened with extinction: @ipbes_ shook up the world with that message in 2019.
And it was by no means the only groundbreaking IPBES report widely cited by policy makers, scientists and media.
Led by Dr. Anne Larigauderie, the international institute put the loss in biodiversity on the political agenda.
Because of that commitment, she earned an honorary doctorate from CMK UHasselt
Let's give her a warm round of applause on this International Day of Biodiversity.
