The Coral Triangle Pacific Project welcomes Mr. Geoff Dews from Australia as FCG ANZDEC’s new Regional Program Manager/Team Leader for the Coral Triangle Pacific Project (ADB TA 7753-REG: Strengthening Coastal and Marine Resources Management in the Coral Triangle of the Pacific – Phase 2). Geoff joins the TA to replace Mr Raoul Cola, who left the TA as at 31 January 2015.

Geoff has a Master’s Degree in Environmental Management and Natural Resource Management, and has more than 26 years experience in the environmental and international development sector with particular experience in building institutional arrangements to manage for ecosystems, natural resources and climate change adaptation. Geoff will work closely with all five countries to develop and drive the TA towards greater heights and achievements.

We would also like to thank Mr Raoul Cola for all of his hard work for his 18 months as the Team Leader. He will be missed a great deal, and his contributions to the TA are both acknowledged and sincerely appreciated.
