One Reply to “Calestous Juma: An Appreciation”

    It is heart breaking. I cannot believe Calestous passed away so untimely. Africa and the world still needed his brilliant mind, his untiring inquisitiveness and strive for genuine people-oriented development. He was my mentor, my role model, when I started my own career in the UN system (UNEP) in the mid-90’s. I had spoken with him earlier this year about a book he wanted to write on biodiversity, to mark the 25th anniversary of the Biodiversity Convention. The book was supposed to be launched at the Africa Biodiversity Summit to be held in Egypt on 6 November 2018. May his soul rest in eternal peace.
