About Corli Pretorius

Corli is responsible for advising and supporting the UN Environment World Conservation Monitoring Centre Director in exercising their strategic management responsibilities across programmatic, policy and managerial issues. Her responsibilities include: development and evaluation of new project areas; development and maintenance of effective liaison with key partners and constituencies, including Governments, and key donor partners; and providing programmatic support, including guidance on engaging with UN system entities, human rights-environment linkages, as well as integrating gender equality and the empowerment of women.

The Arrol Adam Lectures were set up in memory of William Arrol Adam, who read Chemistry at Fitzwilliam House in 1905 and died in 1939. It was the stated intention of the bequest, made in 1962 by his widow Jane Wylie Adam, to disseminate knowledge, promote discussion of issues of general interest and concern and to foster the use of plain and simple English.
