Patrick Worms

Senior Science Policy Advisor
World Agroforestry Center (ICRAF)

Patrick Worms trained as a molecular geneticist and is the Senior Science Policy Advisor of World Agroforestry (ICRAF) and the President of the European Agroforestry Federation. Patrick’s work sits at the nexus of land restoration and human security; marrying traditional and advanced knowledge appears the most promising pathway to rural prosperity, a giant help to mitigate our impact on biodiversity and the atmosphere and, tantalizingly, peace in a warming world. He applies these insights in relationships with donors, corporates, HNWI and the political sphere. He is a trustee of the International Union of Agroforestry, a fellow of the Evergreening Global Alliance, and serves on the steering committee of Initiatives for Land, Lives and Peace and a number of advisory boards.
