Transition - Mehmood Ul Hassan, Muhammad

It is with profound grief and sadness that management, board and entire staff of Centre for Research in Forestry (CIFOR) and World Agroforestry (ICRAF) announce the sudden demise of our dear colleague and friend, Mehmood Ul Hassan, Muhammad who passed away on Friday, 20th March 2020 in MP Shah Hospital.

Mehmood joined ICRAF in October 2012, as Head of Capacity Development based at our Headquarters in Gigiri, Nairobi.

His many contributions, sharp mind, warmth and sense of humour, will be deeply missed. Mehmood had a very calm, professional and supportive style that made him very effective and popular with partners and students, with specific mention of the African Orphan Crops Consortium and the African Plant Breeding Academy, led by UC Davis.
