Courtesy visit to Kasetsart University Office of the President

On September 12, 2011, the last day of his term at RECOFTC, outgoing Executive Director Dr. Yam Malla made a courtesy visit to the Office of the President of Kasetsart University to bid farewell and thank the Royal Thai Government and Kasetsart University for their tremendous support for RECOFTC over the past 24 years. Dr. Damrong Sripraram, Vice President for Academic Services and Dr. Wanchai Arunpraparut, Dean of the Faculty of Forestry of Kasetsart University met with the delegation and Dr. Malla took the opportunity to introduce the new management team, led by incoming Executive Director Dr. Tint Lwin Thuang.  Both parties commended past collaborations, but also agreed to work even closer together in order to scale up activities to support community forestry in Thailand and beyond.

The establishment of RECOFTC would not have been possible without the support of the Royal Thai Government and Kasetsart University.  In 1987, the University donated a plot of land to build our headquarters, and the campus has been a warm home to RECOFTC ever since.
