Discovering the IUCN in Canada: Pierre Iachetti

There are over 500 people in Canada who are actively involved with the work of the IUCN and/or the CCIUCN. Many are members in one or more IUCN Commissions. Others belong to IUCN or CCIUCN member organizations. This occasional series will highlight their IUCN-related work in Canada.

Introducing:  Pierre Iachetti


I am on the IUCN Commission on Ecosystem Management and World Commission on Protected Areas. I also serve on a few sub-groups – Nature-based Solutions Thematic Group, Resilience Thematic Group, Ecosystem-based Adaptation and Mitigation Thematic Group. I have been involved with the IUCN for about 12 years. I have developed research and tools for conservation science and planning, reviewed reports, held a fellowship at the IUCN for a couple years, and provided subject-matter expertise. In my previous work with the Nature Conservancy of Canada, The Nature Conservancy, and provincial, state and federal agencies we developed several ecoregional conservation assessments for the Pacific Northwest of North America using IUCN classifications.
