The Jeju Weekly caught up with Inger Anderson, director general of the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) at the World Leaders’ Conservation Forum at the ICC Jeju on Monday.

Andersen spoke with editor Darren Southcott about the role of the individual and governments in conservation, the critical issues facing conservation site management, the role of conservation in peace relations among much else.

On the role of Jeju as a conservation island, Andersen said Jeju is a “very fine example of a community that has decided that restoring and conserving nature has a much greater value than not doing so. “

She believes that the island could even provide a model to be exported elsewhere.

“[Jeju is] an island dependent on tourism for its income. and therefore understands with more depth how cleaner, greener surroundings and growth can lead to a higher and better quality tourism sector with a higher income.”

She went on to emphasize the critical role that local governments can play in conservation particularly where central governments are slow to act.

“Local governments have a very critical role to play and oftentimes we see that local governments are path setters ... and that is quite an important role to play.”

The full interview will be published on our website in the near future.
