This paper presents a procedure for transforming an imprecise probability assessment about an arbitrary finite set of events into a possibility assignment on the same set. To this purpose, a notion of partial possibility measure is introduced and characterized. These results represent a contribution to the more general research goal of defining an uncertainty interchange format and the relevant transformation procedures to be used in multi-agent systems.
