Application process (Belgium)

The deadline for submitting the IPBES online application form is 5 May 2016. However, applicants seeking Belgian government endorsement are required to submit their forms to the IPBES Secretariat by 28 April 2016.  This is because it is necessary to sift the applications before the IPBES closing date.
