Singapore Environment Lecture 2008

For the Singapore Environment Lecture 2008, the Singapore Environment Council is proud to present Dr. Ahmed Djoghlaf, the Executive Secretary of the United Nations Convention on Biological Diversity. Dr. Djoghlaf will present his views on the topic of Biodiversity and Climate Change. He has noted, “climate change and biodiversity are two faces of the same coin of life”. He will give insight into what his organisation is doing to address these two interlinked environmental challenges. The event will also serve as a platform to exchange ideas on the role that Singapore can actively play in addressing these challenges.

Dr. Djoghlaf has served as Executive Secretary of the Convention on Biological Diversity since January 2006. Prior to this appointment, he was the Assistant Executive Director of United Nations Environment Programme (2003-2005) and the Director of UNEP’s Division of Global Environment Facility (1998-2003). This is Dr. Djoghlaf’s first visit to Singapore as Executive Secretary of the Convention.
