Prize: Appointment


Nomination by Justice Antonio Benjamin, National High Court of Brazil as a member of the IUCN’s World Commission on Environmental Law (WCEL).

The WCEL operates on a global basis and not only takes the lead in projects of its own but also provides a source of expertise for the Environmental Law Centre and other parts of IUCN. The Commission serves as the principal source of legal technical advice to the Union, its members and its collaborating institutions on all aspects of environmental law.

In addition, the WCEL supports action by international governmental organisations, governments and non-governmental organisations to improve or develop legal and institutional infrastructure best attuned to natural resources conservation in the context of sustainable development.
