Globally renowned academic and policy expert Dr Adil Najam has been named as the new President of WWF International.
Dr. Adil Najam concentrates his teaching, research, and public involvement on global public policy challenges, particularly those connected to the environment and conservation, sustainable and human development, and climate change in the Global South.
"I am deeply honoured to be requested to serve as the next President of WWF at a time when its long-standing goal of striving to heal and protect the natural world and its life-supporting systems has become more vital than ever," Adil Najam said in a statement.
"Adil Najam is an exceptional candidate to serve as President of the WWF International Board.
