Terry Sunderland

Professor in the Faculty of Forestry, University of British Columbia

My career has focused on applied research, biodiversity conservation sustainable resource management and linkages to levering policy influence. I have extensive field experience, having been based in Africa for many years, working for organisations such as the Wildlife Conservation Society, the Smithsonian Institution and the UK’s Department for International Development, and latterly the Centre for International Forestry Research with a more Pantropical research portfolio.
