“A forum like the IUCN Leaders Forum is extremely useful because it brings all stakeholders together around the table to discuss at the same time, the right issues particularly with regard to financing nature-based solutions which become essential in fighting not only nature challenges, but also climate challenges.” Patrick Odier, Senior Managing Partner, Lombard Odier Group
LF 2022

IUCN through its vast and diverse membership – was able to bring actors from government, civil society, indigenous populations, members from youth, private sector – all convening equally around a common table and a collective goal to bring nature as a priority in the global agenda.” Razan Al Mubarak, President, IUCN
