James Lord

Development Director

Dr. Lord first visited Belize at age 19 through Raleigh International where he was inspired by the beauty of Belize and also deeply affected by damage to the coral reef. Because he was motivated to offer alternatives to solve environmental problems, he studied economics, ecology, and agriculture, getting his PhD in organic agriculture. After working as a development officer for Ya’axché ConservationTrust, he joined TIDE. James is happy to be at a place where he can make a real difference for the Toledo District, where he can foster the ability of people to build their capacity to develop economically while protecting the ecosystems on which their livelihoods, and ultimately all of us, depend.
