The IFSA board is proud to announce the official of the month for January 2020: Alina Lehikoinen.

Organizing a Conference of Parties with a change of location is certainly not easy, but nothing that catches Alina off-guard. Serving her first term as an official, Alina joined us in Estonia as Head of the UNFCCC Sub-Commission and led the largest UNFCCC IFSA delegation to date through an extremely turbulent event, ensuring a great experience for all IFSA members. Moreover, she organized an IFSA session at the Conference of Youth 15 on using digital communication tools for action on forests and supported the UN-REDD+ IFSA Video Log. With her outstanding organizational skills and her ability to quickly and proactively overcome challenges, she is a core element of IFSA. We want to thank you for all your hard work – and wish you only the best for all your endeavours.
