Tags: , ,

Tarig Magzoub is a lawyer by professional qualification and training. He directed a great deal of his intensive knowledge and skills in scholarly writing, research, and legislative drafting to his area of interest in environmental law.


This interest has been further enhanced by the nature of positions assigned to Mr. Magzoub throughout his career as legal counsel in the Sudanese Ministry of Justice and national legislature as well as positions in academic and training institutions. Mr. Magzoub also benefited from his early association with non-governmental work through his involvement in legislative reform consultations undertaken by the Sudanese Environment Conservation Society. The publications of the said society reflected his contributions in advisory, law reform, and awareness aspects.


Through his co-operation with the Higher Council for Environment and Natural Resources, Magzoub was able to participate in a number of research and conference activities in relation to the environment especially forestry resources. The academic specialization of Mr. Magzoub in federal constitutions and his position as a legal consultant in the area of intergovernmental relations provided him with the opportunity to better understanding local issues of resource management. The consultancy on natural forests management undertaken by Magzoub to SOS Sahel was a vivid proof of his knowledge and experience in the legal aspects of forests management. Magzoub also demonstrated expert knowledge in biodiversity at the regional sphere in a paper he presented in Damascus, Syria as representative of the Arab Organization for Agricultural Development in a workshop held in 1996.


Magzoub has been teaching a course on Environmental Law at the Universities of Khartoum for several years. The curricula for the said course include an inventory of sector legislation in the areas of environment and natural resources.
