Josef Kuhn

I am an ecologist currently researching the potential of REDD+ type projects to empower indigenous peoples who wish to engage in forest stewardship/conservation/management at the local watershed ecosystem level. In my previous work I contributed, as a First Nation Chamber member, to the development of FSC certification standards in Canada. Prior to that I initiated development of an Indigenous Food Plants Programme in Kenya. Before going to Kenya I worked on an ecological land classification for the Southern Lakes region of the Yukon and became the Environmental Protection Biologist for the Territorial Government.
