Stephen Tommy Garnett is Regional Director of Programs for the Environmental Foundation for Africa (EFA) (www.efasl.org.uk), where he oversees country programs in Liberia and Sierra Leone. He has been instrumental in creating national and regional networks. The Environmental Forum for Action in Sierra Leone and Green Actors of West Africa (www.gawa.nu) networks to promote synergy between environmental organisations and develop a solid platform for effective environmental advocacy in the national and regional arenas.

Tommy’s background is in Agricultural and Development Economics. Following post-graduate studies in the former USSR, he began his career in 1984, as a high school teacher in Kenya, where he taught Agriculture, Mathematics and Physical Education for four years, during which time, he developed a keen interest in conservation issues.

In 1992, one year after the onset of civil conflict in his home country, Tommy founded the Environmental Foundation for Sierra Leone as a charity in the UK, to create awareness about the environmental impacts of the conflict and the unregulated and destructive mineral mining industry which fuelled the conflict and to empower the local people to protect the integrity of nature in Sierra Leone. In 1995, he moved back to Sierra Leone and set up a pilot program of land reclamation and reforestation projects until 1997, when the deteriorating security situation made further work impossible.

Compelled to abandon operations in Sierra Leone, he moved to Liberia in 1997 and established the Environmental Foundation for Africa (www.efasl.org.uk). He developed a portfolio of projects financed by the IUCN National Committee of the Netherlands and UNHCR, the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees, to address the environmental impacts of hundreds of thousands of refugees and the internally displaced in Liberia. From 1998, he travelled extensively in the West Africa sub-region studying and reporting on the nature and extent of the threats to the Upper Guinea Forest Ecosystem.

Tommy has been a member since 1998 of IUCN CEC, the International Union for Conservation of Nature’s Commission on Education and Communication. He was appointed CEC Regional Vice-Chair Central and West Africa in 2006 and again for 2009-2012. From 2003-2007, he was a member of the United Nations Panel of Experts monitoring economic sanctions on Liberia, with the specific task of assessing the socio-economic and humanitarian impacts of the sanctions, producing several reports to the UN Security Council during this time. He has been West Africa Regional Focal Point for the IUCN National Committee of the Netherlands since 2004. He is an alumnus of Cambridge University’s Climate Leadership Program.

Reports and publications co-authored by Tommy Garnett include ‘Nature Conservation in Liberia and Sierra Leone – Our Upper Guinea Heritage’ (2000); ‘Our Environment – An Environmental Education Manual for Schools’ (2001); and ‘The Impact of Conflict on Biodiversity’ (a report commissioned by WWF Biodiversity Support Program, 2000) and ‘The CEPA Toolkit for National Focal Points and NBSAP Coordinators’ (about the Convention on Biological Diversity, 2007).
