    • Nature and its contributions to people’s quality of life are associated with a wide diversity of values.
    • IPBES embraces this diversity of values, as well as the need to integrate and bridge them in its assessments.
    • Uncovering the values of nature’s contributions to people (NCP) can bridge notions of nature and a good quality of life.
    • Transformation towards sustainability requires addressing power relations among different perspectives on the values of NCP.
    • Intrinsic, instrumental and relational values need to be acknowledged and promoted.

    Nature is perceived and valued in starkly different and often conflicting ways. This paper presents the rationale for the inclusive valuation of nature’s contributions to people (NCP) in decision making, as well as broad methodological steps for doing so. While developed within the context of the Intergovernmental Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES), this approach is more widely applicable to initiatives at the knowledge–policy interface, which require a pluralistic approach to recognizing the diversity of values. We argue that transformative practices aiming at sustainable futures would benefit from embracing such diversity, which require recognizing and addressing power relationships across stakeholder groups that hold different values on human nature-relations and NCP.
