Aim of the working group
The conservation status of wild bee species according to IUCN Red List criteria has been assessed only in some regions of the world (Europe and to a lesser extent, South, Meso and North America). Strengthening of local and global databases (target 3) opens the way to new Red List assessments for more species, and in more regions of the world.
The aim here is to establish a network of experts for each region, in order to further assess species according to IUCN Red List criteria.
