Jane Goodall, PhD, DBE Founder - the Jane Goodall Institute & UN Messenger of Peace

“I have known Razan well for a long time and been impressed by her passion for conservation. She founded the first JGI Roots & Shoots programmes in the Middle East, and has encouraged the spread of this environmental and humanitarian movement for youth throughout the UAE (it is currently in 65 countries). She is exactly the right person to lead the IUCN: dedicated, decisive and experienced. I strongly endorse her candidacy for IUCN President.”

Topiltzin Contreras MacBeath Former Secretary of Sustainable Development for the State of Morelos, Mexico

“Razan will make a great IUCN President. She understands conservation from both process and policy perspectives. Her experience in leading a large government agency, as well as a donor organization and an NGO, gives her a unique and sophisticated perspective from which to lead the IUCN.”
