Mike Hands. Inga Foundation (IF)

  1. Ecologist specialising in the ecology of Tropical Rain Forest; and especially in the ecology of slash-and-burn subsistence agriculture. After many years’ experience in development projects in the World’s tropics, he began, in the mid 1980's, the studies that have led eventually to IF’s present Land for Life program. Following a pilot project in Costa Rica, he spent the following 14 years as Senior Research Associate in the University of Cambridge; working almost entirely in Central America. In this role, he directed four research projects in Costa Rica and Honduras. These four Cambridge projects upheld and expanded his initial hypotheses and findings; they led to the development and proving of sustainable agroforestry techniques as alternatives to slash-and-burn. In 2007, he and colleagues established Inga Foundation as a registered UK Charitable Trust to continue and expand this pioneering work in the world's rain forests. A lifelong naturalist.
