Secretary of the United Nations Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD)

Insight from Ahmed Djoghlaf, ex-Executive Secretary of the United Nations Convention on Biological Diversity

“This expansion will enable the Secretariat to be better equipped to help the signatory countries and their partners bring the Nagoya Protocol to life. Montréal International handled the entire process with all of our partners and the World Trade Centre. Although it was a complex case, they did a great job. As you know, Montréal is home to many international organizations we have excellent relations with. We can readily work there in two UN languages, and we feel quite comfortable. We are thus quite pleased at the way things turned out.”
