The Mexican environmental scientist receiving an award right on Trump's doorstep
- Professor José Sarukhán is largely being lauded for his work in establishing CONABIO – the National Commission for the Knowledge and Use of Biodiversity – a federal institution that brings together work on Mexico's varied ecosystems and helps better inform government policy and society as a whole. Getting CONABIO off the ground was fairly coincidental, Sarukhán told IBTimes UK, "but I think it was a happy coincidence." In the early 1990s, Sarukhán was president of the National University of Mexico when he received a call from then Mexican President Carlos Salinas de Gortari asking what the country could take to the UN Earth Summit, taking place in Rio. Sarukhán saw the opportunity.
