Do you aspire to be a lead author of assessments from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), the Intergovernmental Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES) or World Meteorological Organization / United Nations Environment Programme (WMO/UNEP), or have your work cited in these assessments?
