3 directors, 30 years: an interview with Dr Tint Lwin Thaung, Dr Yam Malla and Dr Somsak Sukwong

As RECOFTC approaches its 30 year anniversary in 2017, RECOFTC is launching the first podcast in our new series 'Empowering people for change', where we take you behind the scenes of our work to empower local communities and connect you directly with some of the amazing change-makers in our community.

In this podcast, we feature RECOFTC’s three former Executive Directors – Dr Tint Lwin Thaung, Dr Yam Malla and Dr Somsak Sukwong. The three former Directors speak candidly about the achievements and challenges of community forestry during their tenure.

In the full interview, you’ll learn more about:

• What spurred the creation of RECOFTC 30 years ago

• How the discourse on community forestry has changed

• RECOFTC’s achievements and challenges ahead to ensure that more quality lands are effectively managed by empowered local communities

Enjoy this podcast and please leave us your feedback and suggestions for future podcasts in this series.

Note: this interview was recorded prior to when RECOFTC's current director, Dr David Ganz, joined us in early 2017.
