Mar/ April 2018

A Note from the CEO, Tom Lalampaa

Dear ATC Readers,

The rains have blessed the northern rangelands once again. I’ve watched the seasons change here since I was a young boy, but it still amazes me how quickly the dusty, desperate plains transform into a rich green landscape, brimming with life.

Indeed, there is change all around. I am thrilled to have been appointed as the next CEO of NRT by the Board. I take over from Mike Harrison, who leaves me to run a very different organisation from the one he started with six years ago. NRT has grown significantly in size, stature, professionalism and impact over this period, and Mike now continues as Director of Sustainability, while I look forward to being supported in my new role by a very strong senior management team, our many partners in the field, in donor agencies, in County Governments and around the world.

I hope you enjoy our March/ April digest, thank you for your continued support.
