Abstract : Even though the need for a global science-policy interface has been identified as a recurring gap in the governance of biodiversity, establishing such an institution has not been trouble free. The creation of the Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES) was in fact the outcome of a relatively long and laborious international negotiation process during which several interests and world views had to be carefully conciliated. The complex array of rules and procedures that governs IPBES is the result of this slow genesis. The purpose of this chapter is to provide a general overview of this young institution in order to make sense of its mandate, structure, ruJ.es of procedure and general place in the complex institutional landscape of biodiversity governance. Firstly, the early history of the Platform will be summarized in order to put into context its mandate and functioning. Secondly, and most importantly, its institutional characteristics will be detailed so as to decipher its day- to-day work. Finally, we will offer a broader legal perspective of this institution by briefly discussing its relation with other important actors in international environmental law. (Résumé d'auteur)
