"You have scientific advisors, scientific experts and organizations who will actually implement things, and you also have planners and administrators who are actually making the apex level planning process of the government. So it’s the one forum where all of them meet together."


Senior Advisor, WTI

Prof. B.C. Choudhary

"Leaders for nature is a platform that brings together experts of conservation and biodiversity as well as civil society organizations"


Executive Director, IFHD

Ms. Aruna Rangachar Pohl

"In an area like Biodiversity, which the business sector is least familiar with, there is a need for external facilitation and external catalyses and IUCN Leaders for nature has played that role, The Master Classes fill in crucial gaps in awareness and knowledge."


Vice President, Wipro

Mr. P.S. Narayan

“I participated in The Urban Ecology Workshop of IUCN held at Wipro Hinjewadi Campus. It was enriching for me to be a part of a discussion where different local NGOs came together with their set of expertise to elucidate the issues prevailing in the city of Pune. It was good to see an open dialogue portal as an outcome of the discussion where different stakeholders can connect on one platform. I would definitely look forward to the Workshops & Forums conducted by LfN in future. Keep up the good work!"
