Dr. Adil Najam, the Vice Chancellor of LUMS, gave a plenary presentation on Global Environmental Governance at the Annual Conference of WWF-International being held in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. 

Speaking to an audience of WWF national and international leaders and a large number of global thought leaders on issues related to the environment and sustainable development, Dr. Najam highlighted the importance of connecting global, regional, national and local governance issues. He is a leading global expert on international environmental governance and has written extensively on the subject.

In his talk the LUMS Vice Chancellor stressed on the importance of understanding environmental governance as a connected web of relationships between issues as agencies rather than a linear and top-down process of regulation and implementation. Dr. Najam emphasised that we do have far more ‘artifacts’ of governance in the international system today.

Dr. Najam, who was recently elected a Trustee of the International Board of WWF is in Rotterdam to attend the International Board Meeting and Annual WWF Convention (May 6-11, 2012). Dr. Najam’s talk on environmental governance was part of an ‘ideas factory’ process which included invited presentations by a group of leading global intellectuals and practitioners on sustainable development. WWF-Pakistan is also represented at the Annual meeting by Ali Habib (Director General) and Khald Mahmood (Board President).
