In early April we had out annual assembly, on Zoom, and are happy to announce 100% member representation, for us a new record after 18 years of institutional life. In the meeting, among other ordinary items like balances and budgets, we approved a new strategic plan and elected a new board of directors. The board is made up of the following members:
This team brings many decades of combined conservation experience and looks forward to executing our new strategic plan designed to help guide us through the next seven years until we reach our 25th anniversary. Wish us luck!
We give special thanks to the Critical Ecosystem Partnership Fund (CEPF) for their support over the last period and acknowledge their critical input that helped make this strategic planning possible and also the new website where you must have found this blog. Hat’s off!
The CEPF support has other components, like our new data collection and geo-documenting tools to help gain more efficiency and trackability in our forest restoration program. These tools and their results will become more and more visible over the coming months and we invite you to please stay tuned in as we work.Please sign up for our newsletter or follow us in one of our social media channels and we’ll be sure to keep you informed.
In this case for their current support we give special thanks to CEPFThe Critical Ecosystem Partnership Fund is a joint initiative of l'Agence Française de Développement, Conservation International, the European Union, the Global Environment Facility, the Government of Japan and the World Bank. A fundamental goal is to ensure civil society is engaged in biodiversity conservation.
