IUCN Member, Law for a Green Planet Institute, has used the occasion of the 7th International Conference on Environmental Law, 'Law, Water and the Web of Life' to pay tribute to Dr Parvez Hassan for his 'vision, leadership and commitment to a sustainable world'. Dr Hassan was the Chair of the IUCN CEL from 1990 - 1996 and has continued to serve on the CEL Steering Committee since that time. Dr Hassan went on to establish, build and endow the Dr Parvez Hassan Environmental Law Centre, at Punjab University in his home town of Lahore, Pakistan (which was opened in February of this year). The conference also heard presentations from many IUCN CEL and ELC experts, including Dr Hassan, on human rights and water, comparative water governance, comparative water legal regimes and enforcement, and challenges to water conservation in common markets. IUCN was proud to co-sponsor this major international event.
