Dr Glato Kodjo

We are sure that all members of plant science and entomology communities will share the deep sadness with which we learned that one of our network members, Dr Glato Kodjo, a professor-researcher at the Faculty of Sciences of the University of Lome, Togo, was among 157 people who tragically lost their lives when an Ethiopian Airlines Boeing 737 Max-8, bound for Nairobi, crashed on 10 March 2019.

Dr Kodjo was travelling to a plant science training course in Nairobi that had been organised by the CONNECTED network in association with Biosciences eastern and central Africa – International Livestock Research Institute (BecA-ILRI) Hub, Kenya.

Our deepest condolences are with Dr Kodjo’s family, friends and colleagues, at this extremely sad and difficult time.
