The World Commission on Protected Areas was thrilled when Ernesto Enkerlin Hoeflich was elected as Chair of the Commission at the IUCN World Conservation Congress in Jeju, Republic of Korea. Kathy MacKinnon will be the Deputy Chair of the Commission.

“I am so pleased that Ernesto has been elected as Chair of WCPA, the most critical position in conservation, said Nik Lopoukhine”, outgoing WCPA Chair.

"WCPA has deep roots, strong foundations and many success stories. I will provide renewed energy and leadership to do more, faster and better. The support to the one programme of IUCN, the Global Protected Areas Programme, the BIOPAMA project and a variety ongoing initiatives will ensure continuity. Working with members on implementation will be a strong focus starting today with meetings for the 2014 World Parks Congress." said Enkerlin.

WCPA Plans for the future

Ernesto outlined some of his plans for his four-year term: “WCPA has strong and deep foundations and plenty of accomplishments. As a proven transformational leader in conservation, WPCA has the the opportunity to innovate and reenergize the work. To do more, faster, better and larger, WCPA needs an expanded and more diverse membership and especially better integration with more members, expert members and secretariat all over the world to enable improvements in in law, governance, capacity building, institutional reform, economic valuation, effectiveness evaluation and conflict resolution. The WCPA Chair will catalyze action based on the mandate approved at the IUCN Congress in Jeju. In particular, the IUCN World Parks Congress in Sydney, Australia in 2014 will be a major focus of WCPA’s activities over the next four years, and we are very fortunate that Australia, with its progressive conservation community will be the host of this congress”.
