The late Ms. Ghanimat Azhdari

The Secretariat of the National Organizing Committee for the Joint XXIV IGC and XI IRC congress, convey deepest condolences on the passing on of one of the Keynote Speakers, Ms. Ghanimat Azhdari, in the recent plane crash near Tehran. 

Ms. Ghanimat worked for Centre for Sustainable Development and Environment (Cenesta). She was an inspiring, intelligent young scientist who was very passionate about indigenous issues and the environment.  Ms. Ghanimat Azhdari had agreed to give a Keynote presentation on 'Pastoralism, Social, Gender and Policy Issues' during the up-coming October 2020 Congress. 

May her Soul Rest in Peace and May the Almighty God comfort the family to bear the loss with courage.
