Director II – Community Development and Agroforestry Systems
Elmo served as PRCF Director II from 1996 to 2014, and then rejoined in late 2018 until his passing in early 2021. Elmo not only helped shape the path of PRCF through his dedication and support, but also via technical advice and inputs on forestry, agroforestry, and community-based resource management and biodiversity conservation. Every moment with Elmo was a joy. He exuded warmth, humility, enthusiasm and a very cheeky disposition. Borrowing the words of a colleague, with Elmo "laughter was never far away, but nor was he frivolous when it came to his passion for forests, trees and ecological sustainability". We will all miss him dearly.
