"Founder of Eco-livelihoods Consultants to leverage the experience gained in almost ten years of working in African forest communities, across diverse and often disparate stakeholders and with resource constrained environments. Eco-livelihoods develops the ideas of sustainable livelihoods beyond carbon trading and engages with the full range of livelihood-creation issues and Payments for Ecosystems Services (PES) to build sustainability programmes in developing countries. Ecolivelihoods Consultants provide a bridge between companies concerned with delivering successful environmental impacts, effective Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programmes and good community relations and the people and communities they engage with. Our focus is on clients who do business in complex, diverse and sensitive environments. Eco-livelihoods has taken over management of the Kamoa Pilot Project in Katanga Province (DRC). The pilot is a Corporate Social Responsibility initiative of African Minerals Barbados Ltd (AMBL and focuses on site rehabilitation, conservation of existing forest and sustainability initiatives to address drivers of deforestation."
