In Memoriam - Olivier de Munck (1965 - 2018)

With immense sadness, we announce the death of our dear colleague Olivier de Munck. He was a supremely dedicated colleague who joined the CBD Secretariat in 1999. For almost two decades Olivier helped develop and then lead the Clearing House Mechanism, the backbone of the Convention's information management system. He was generous with his time and his expertise. Olivier will be much missed and mourned by the colleagues, partners and focal points all across the world with whom he shared his passion for using technology to better protect biodiversity. For more information, please see the CBD Secretariat website.

A dedicated email address condolences [at] has been set up to transmit messages of condolence to Olivier's family.
