We are deeply saddened by the news of Olivier de Munck’s passing.
Olivier has been a pioneer and leading visionary of the InforMEA Initiative from its very beginning as the representative of the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD). While at CBD he developed and led the Clearing House Mechanism (CHM).
Olivier was known to be a wonderful, inspiring and a hard working colleague, deeply committed to biodiversity and knowledge management issues. His enthusiasm, unique expertise, humility and respect to others made him an enormous pleasure to work with. He will be terribly missed.
Our hearts go out to his family, friends and colleagues as we pray for their strength and comfort during these sad and difficult times.
