“Having led a governmental agency, a regional NGO, and a global philanthropy, Razan has the experience and vision to lead the IUCN's diverse members and help the Union work in a more unified way to advocate for the conservation of nature. As the first woman from the Arab world to lead the IUCN and only the second female President in its 72-year history, Razan will also ensure diverse voices, especially young people and indigenous groups, have a meaningful and active role in IUCN governance.”
