Director General of the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN)
Based in Switzerland since 1961, IUCN belongs to the large family of international organizations headquartered in Geneva. IUCN works closely with many of these. This fosters linkages between different fields of action: between environmental and humanitarian issues, as well as between trade and sustainable development. IUCN also benefits from the generous support of Switzerland, a State Member of IUCN, to the implementation of our programme of work. On a practical level, our location at the heart of Europe with easy access to the rest of the world enables us to be a truly global environmental network.
