Lucía Ruiz is a biologist who decided that her commitment towards environmental sciences needed economics and finance as means to achieve her goals. 

She has over 10 years of experience working on biodiversity policy and finance issues. She worked for almost five years in southeast Mexico implementing Payment for Environmental Services schemes and doing tourism planning. Since 2014, Lucía has worked at Mexico’s National Commission for Natural Protected Areas (CONANP) where she lead the team of environmental economics for protected areas. 

She has extensive experience on issues related to biodiversity conservation, ecosystem services, protected area finance, and sustainable tourism, and currently works as Coordinator for Biodiversity and Finance. 

Lucía holds a Master’s in Environmental Management from Yale University. She currently lives in Mexico City.
