    This collaborative research project aims to strengthen national and international ties between researchers working on future scenarios of biodiversity and ecosystem services, i.e. the various benefits that people obtain from ecosystems. ScenNet focuses on networking and capacity building in all eight countries participating in this network through i) international workshops, ii) development of national networks, iii) a large international conference on biodiversity and ecosystem service scenarios to be held in 2016, and iv) a web-based networking tool. Specifically, the Japanese researchers will be in charge of hosting one of the international workshops in Tokyo, and developing national a network. By working together, it is expected to substantially contribute to the newly initiated Intergovernmental Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES) and Future Earth.
