IPB expects that the impacts of the conference will be in many fields and at several levels. A successful event will

  • Increase the level of public debate
  • Broaden the community of activism
  • Require politicians to respond with policy proposals
  • Encourage students and researchers to develop academic work in the areas highlighted by the Congress.

Additional effects could include

  • New membership applications for the IPB itself
  • New partners in the GDAMS/GCOMS effort
  • New funding partners

We are setting up a logical framework within which to analyse these various outputs and the indicators to enable us to measure them.
