This appointment was approved by the Foundation's General Assembly which followed in the afternoon.
“The Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation has a long and impressive record of advocating for cleaner oceans, marine biodiversity, and the safety of communities threatened by climate change. It is an honor to join the Board of Directors and I look forward to contributing my expertise, linking natural resource protection to economic, food, and environmental security for coastal communities and countries around the world alike,” said Sally Yozell.
Sally Yozell's research focuses on ocean and climate security, wildlife protection and the impact of environmental threats on national, regional and global security. During her previous assignment at the US State Department, Sally Yozell had already worked with the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation to obtain concrete commitments in terms of marine conservation during the Our Ocean conferences in particular or during the sanctuary of the Ross Sea in Antarctica. Last March, during Monaco Ocean Week 2022, the Stimson Center and the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation co-organised, alongside the Ocean Climate Platform, the Sea and the City conference, dedicated to coastal resilience solutions to the effects of climate change.
The Foundation's teams are delighted to welcome Sally Yozell to their governance bodies and extend their congratulations and best wishes to her.
