GENI & KEBE PARTNER APPOINTED AS A MEMBER OF THE IUCN’S WORLD COMMISSION ON ENVIRONMENTAL LAW

The World Commission on Environmental Law (WCEL) is a network of environmental law and policy experts from all regions of the world who volunteer their knowledge and services to International Union for Conservation and Nature (IUCN) activities, especially to those of the IUCN Law Programme.

Dr Aboubacar Fall, Partner with GENI & KEBE, has been appointed a member of the WCEL and looks forward to supporting the group’s efforts in valuing and conserving nature, through the development of pro-active laws to combat challenges on environmental & climate change related issues.
“It is a privilege to be volunteering with the WCEL team to develop and promote legal solutions to promote natural resources conservation in the context of sustainable development,” notes Dr Fall.  “In emerging market contexts, the environment & climate change can sometimes fall off the list of priorities as efforts are focused on economic development and humanitarian relief.  However, any long term development work must recognize the impact of environmental and climate change related issues.  As lawyers, we are in a position to mold the policy and legislative framework to ensure this takes place responsibly and to look after the natural environment for our children.  In West Africa, as investment in mining increases, so too does the impact on the natural environment and climate change.  Effective regulation – and proper implementation of that regulation – can ensure that development goals can be achieved sustainably.”
IUCN is the world’s oldest and largest global environmental organization, with staff and volunteers in 160 countries.   WCEL's goal is to demonstrate the vital importance of national and international strategies for environmental conservation, including the sustainable use of natural resources within and beyond national jurisdictions.
