Our Board of Trustees

Meet RECOFTC's governing body.


The Board of Trustees is RECOFTC's paramount governing body. It consists of 15 members drawn from senior government and civil society organizations, eminent individuals from the world of community forestry, donors, a dean of Kasetsart University — where the organization is based in Bangkok — and the Center's executive director.

 

Chair of the Board Dr. Doris Capistrano leads the six-monthly board reviews of the Center's implementation of its mandate to develop community forestry in the Asia- Pacific region, as well as organizational matters.
