Integrative Conservation and Anthropology PhD student and HECL Lab member John McGreevy recently presented with Haitian colleague Elkins Voltaire at the Haitian Studies Association Conference in Cap Haitien, Haiti. Their paper combined findings from McGreevy’s research in Haiti since 2012 and collaborative research as part of an international team studying non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and the environment in the summer of 2016, and panel discussion from the research team contributed to the conference’s focus on Haiti’s ecological situation and the future of natural resource use in the country. Skills and experience gained through ICON shaped McGreevy’s conversations at the conference, sparking constructive dialogue with NGO practitioners, scholars from other disciplines, and consultants working with the Haitian government on natural resource and land use policy.
