Camille has been responsible for the origination, implementation, and management of EcoPlanet Bamboo’s operations to date in Nicaragua, South Africa, and Ghana, currently representing more than 35,000 acres. Through EcoPlanet Bamboo, Camille has developed global and local frameworks within which bamboo can be a positive tool for achieving landscape restoration while reducing deforestation through the provision of a deforestation-free fiber to major markets and industries.

Camille has a background in innovative financing mechanisms for the conservation of natural forests, and prior to co-founding EcoPlanet Bamboo, she developed or managed forestry projects ranging from large-scale commercial plantations to smallholder operations in more than 20 countries across Latin America, Africa, and Asia. She is an expert in forest certification, and through early involvement with the UNFCCC and voluntary carbon markets developed some of the first successful forest carbon markets globally. Camille sits on the Global Restoration Council and has advised governments around the world on mechanisms towards successful forest landscape restoration.
