Passing of Klaus Durbeck

I am sad to hear that Klaus Durbeck died this week. Klaus was a expert on the trade in medicinal plants. He worked in many emerging and developing economies around the world promoting the sustainable use of plants. I attended several conferences and trade fairs with him – he had huge knowledge about ways to engage communities in collecting plants in their local areas and to build value through strong stewardship. Here is a dedication to him from FairWild, an innovative certification scheme he helped establish.
