Latin America and the Caribbean

Ana is a lawyer (University of Buenos Aires), specialized in environmental law and policy. She has fifteen years ́ experience working on environmental matters. Ana has been in charge of the Biodiversity Area in FARN since 2010, and since 2013 she is also Deputy Director. Highly organized and a multitasker, she manages projects on: land and sea biodiversity conservation and sustainable use; wetlands restoration; creation of new and effective implementation of existent biodiversity legislation and policies, and natural protected areas and indigenous and community conserved areas; development and recognition of biocultural protocols and corridors; transformative environmental education; and environmental territorial planning. It does so, advocating for open, transparent and participative processes, with an ecosystem and human rights-based approach.

She has very good knowledge of the UN system. Since 2010 she follows CBD and Ramsar negotiations, and since 2017 UNCCD ́s. She attends and actively engages with CSOs at COPs and intersessional meetings, as well as resulting national processes. She has extensive experience contributing to daily strategy meetings and activities, editing advocacy CSO ́s bulletins and documents, preparing text proposals for negotiations, addressing Parties in formal events, formal notes and requests, among others.

She has a strong understanding of the differentiated impact that CSOs networking has, and experience in coordinating and promoting consensus in very diverse groups of people and institutions. She is used to and enjoys working in multicultural contexts. A recognition of these abilities and sensitivity has been her election as IUCN Councilor for South America voted by the Members ́ Assembly (2021-2025), as formal representative of CSOs before the National Commission on Biodiversity in charge of developing and implementing the National Biodiversity Strategy, as an active member of the CBD ́s Women Major Group, and as Coordinator of IUCN ́s Argentine National Committee (2015-2021).
