Message by the New Interim Executive Director
It gives me a great pleasure to be appointed as the Interim Executive Director of the Horn of Africa Regional Environment Centre and Network. I received the letter of my appointment from Pr. Admasu Tsegaye, President of Addis Ababa University, on 20 January 2017. I am humbled by the new responsibility entrusted to me to lead HoA-REC&N.
It has been 10 years since HoA-REC&N began operating in the Horn of Africa with the vision of a safe, healthy and sustainable environment for the region. Since its establishment, HoA-REC&N has undertaken many innovative initiatives, aimed at promoting better environmental governance and management in the Horn of Africa. By uniting academia and development practitioners, HoA-REC&N uses a science-based approach to environmental development challenges. HoA-REC&N has brought together more than 40 institutions across the Horn of Africa to exchange knowledge and experiences and to enable them to work together for the sustainable development of the region.
I believe that an environment of collaboration and the exchange of knowledge among actors in the Horn of Africa plays a vital role in stopping the startling environmental degradation the region has seen for decades. Through its flagship programmes, HoA-REC&N has been contributing to this cause, in collaboration with international donors, governments, universities, research institutions, civil society, and community members.
