Congratulations to Professor Amran Hamzah whose service as a member of the Global Steering Committee of the IUCN Commissioner on Environmental, Economic and Social Policy (CEESP) from 2012-2016 has been recognised in an award ceremony at the IUCN World Conservation Congress, currently being held in Honolulu, Hawaii from 1-10 September 2016. Professor Amran has also held the post of Co-Chair for Theme on Indigenous Peoples, Local Communities, Equity and Protected Areas (TILCEPA) whose scope of works includes advising IUCN on matters concerning agreements and global policies on biodiversity conservation, climate change, protected area management, etc. The presence of Professor Amran at the IUCN’s World Conservation Congress is at the invitation of the world body due to his candidacy for the post of IUCN Regional Councillor 2016-2020, a prestigious post accorded to a person for his or her contribution towards biodiversity conservation at the international level. The election result for the Regional Councillor post will be known Sept 10th and let’s all hope, for FAB and UTM, Professor Amran would be elected.


Heartiest Congratulations to Ms Nadzirah Hosen who is currently attending the IUCN World Conservation Congress in Honolulu, Hawaii from 1-10 September 2016. Nadzirah is a first-year PhD student at the Department of Urban and Regional Planning whose supervisor is Professor Amran Hamzah. Nadzirah’s attendance at the congress is being funded by IUCN (International Union for Conservation of Nature)’s WCPA (The World Commission on Protected Areas) Young Professionals Fund which grants her USD2,400 (~RM10,000) for the purpose. Over at the congress Nadzirah has a rare opportunity to mingle and share knowledge and ideas with the current and future champions of world conservation. All the best to Nadzirah and we are confident that she is representing us well at the congress.
