Key areas of work and interests:
I am interested in forest governance and forest tenure issues, particularly for Africa and more particularly the Congo Basin. Topical interests include rights based approaches to forest tenure, indigenous peoples, multi-stakeholders processes and payments for ecosystems services.
Previous work includes IUCN, Rainforest Foundation UK and multiple consultation assignments, geographical focus is on Francophone Africa (in particular Congo Basin) and Central America. At KIT I am developing work on environmental management, forest and natural resources governance, and land rights.
