Lynne is an environmental specialist with over 25 years experience of working in tropical environments throughout the world and specialising in marine projects in the Middle East. Projects have ranged from environmental impacts of coastal developments, public awareness projects, education projects and tourism master planning. She has also been involved in a number of projects in the Caribbean, South East Asia, South Asia and Africa, mostly associated with marine environmental management and planning. Since becoming independent she has focussed on the provision of short-term services to a variety of clients both in the private and government sectors. Although still specialising in marine issues, she has also been involved in more terrestrial projects including a number related to the tourism industry. She has worked fairly extensively for DFID in Africa looking at change management in the government sector using the provision of environmental services as an issues-based project to promote transparency and accountability in government. She is currently working on four projects in Bahrain, all concerned with environmental assessment, development of environmental management plans and the identification of compensation packages associated with major dredging and reclamation projects. She is also using environmental sustainability concepts to inform the master plan designs. She is also a project monitor and evaluator for the EU LIFE Environment and Nature Programmes.

Roger Bancroft

Roger Bancroft - Plant Pathologist

Roger Bancroft is a plant pathologist and has worked with plant diseases and physiological disorders for 30 years. His specialism is the post-harvest management of fresh horticultural produce (fruits, flowers, vegetables, spices, bulbs and root crops etc.) and agricultural crops (such as grains, cereals and oilseeds etc.) and the identification and amelioration of rots, moulds and quality defects that arise during their trading and marketing. He is often commissioned to: investigate the defective ripening of fruits or the cause of deterioration, spoilage and mycotoxin production in storage facilities, containers, reefer and ships’ cargoes etc.; undertake studies to determine weaknesses in supply chains; appraise post-harvest handling practices; quantify biological and economic losses, and prepare forensic expert witness reports and testimony. With over 20 years experience of teaching storage biology, pathology, physiology and post-harvest technology to a wide range of clients from producers, traders, extension staff, importers/exporters to university and PhD students, he is well placed to design and deliver bespoke training courses and prepare dissemination materials. Roger has been engaged in technology transfer, and research and development projects in the UK, the Caribbean and Africa. Most initiatives have involved the study and application of technical interventions and the modification of handling practices to reduce post-harvest losses. He has experience in all aspects of project realisation from conception and design to day-to-day management, reporting and evaluation. Inherent in all such projects has been capacity building of individuals, teams and resource groups.
