Dr. Fernando Potess

Profile:

Dr. Potess is a forest governance and conservation specialist with over 25 years of experience in designing, managing, implementing, and assessing small, medium, and multi-million dollar projects and programs. Most long-term assignments have focused on forestry and biodiversity conservation and management—including protected area management, social forestry and community-based forest management, industrial forest plantations, and land-use planning for resource conservation, sustainable livelihoods and buffer zone socioeconomic development. Several assignments have included analysis and development of management policies as these relate to forestry, biodiversity, protected area management, community-based forestry, and land-use planning for conservation and development. Assignments have also entailed policy analysis and development in reference to biodiversity conservation and management of forest resources. Several of the long-term inputs as Chief Technical Advisor, Team Leader, or Site Task Manager have been funded by overseas development assistance grants or loans to the recipient country. Short missions have included project preparation and evaluations to proposed, ongoing, or finalizing projects related to forest governance, policy, and biodiversity conservation and management initiatives. Sources of funding for the above have mostly included the United Nations Development Program, United States Agency for International Development, World Bank, Overseas Development Administration, European Commission, European Union, Global Environmental Facility, and Governments of Finland, Netherlands  Dr. Potess is co-founder of the PRCF, and acts of President Director and Chief Executive Officer for the organization.

Leadership Statement:

People Resources and Conservation Foundation (PRCF) is a US-based 501(c)3 non-profit, non-government, and non-membership organization. We promote conservation, protection, and wise use of natural resources with sound social and economic development. PRCF works with rural people in developing countries, particularly with communities living next to protected areas, remnant forests, and degraded forest lands. Our mission To conserve biodiversity, ecosystem services, and local cultural identities through participatory solutions that protect and promote the wise use of natural resources, support socioeconomic development of communities, and enable effective adaptation to climate change. Our strategic priorities Conservation of biodiversity and ecosystem functions Sustainable management and use of natural resources Community-based conservation initiatives Cultural arts revitalization and ethnic minority livelihoods Working with local communities PRCF directors and staff realize that local communities are integral to the success of nature conservation and community development programs. We therefore advocate community participation and environmental conservation in its natural resource management program. Activities that change the cultural identity or social structure of local populations or negatively affect the natural environment are rejected and discouraged. Through our field programs, PRCF motivates local people to preserve and enhance their traditional self-respect and identity. We encourage communities to be active and responsible in all development activities. This includes participation of stakeholders in needs assessment, planning, implementation, and progress monitoring. To reinforce this participation premise, active members in PRCF community development programs are regarded as 'project owners'. Collectively, they share the responsibility of all labor inputs and most of the materials needed to complete their projects.

Board Leadership Practices (GuideStar Nonprofit Profile,

?

GuideStar worked with BoardSource, the national leader in nonprofit board leadership and governance, to create this section, which enables organizations and donors to transparently share information about essential board leadership practices.

Board Orientation & Education ?
Why does this matter? Without clarity around their responsibilities and expectations, board members are not positioned to succeed. They may find themselves challenged to fulfill their governance responsibilities or frustrated by the expectations that the organization has set for them. BoardSource recommends that every new board member participate in a formal orientation process, and that all board members sign a pledge or agreement committing to their board service and to all of the responsibilities and expectations that come with service. Ideally, board members also should participate in a formal governance training program prior to serving on a board.

Does the board conduct a formal orientation for new board members and require all board members to sign a written agreement regarding their roles, responsibilities, and expectations?
Response Not Provided
CEO Oversight ?
Why does this matter? Oversight and management of the chief executive is one of the board’s most important legal responsibilities. The CEO or executive director is the board's single employee, and - just like any other employer/employee relationship - regular and written assessment is critical to ensuring that the chief executive and board are communicating openly about goals and performance. BoardSource recommends that boards conduct formal, written reviews of their chief executives on an annual basis, which should include an in-person discussion with the chief executive and distribution of the written evaluation to the full board.

Has the board conducted a formal, written assessment of the chief executive within the past year?
Response Not Provided
Ethics & Transparency ?
Why does this matter? A commitment to handling conflicts of interests is essential to creating an organizational culture of transparency. Boards should create and follow a policy for identifying and handling conflicts of interest, whether real or perceived. BoardSource recommends that organizations review the conflict-of-interest statement and require signed disclosures from all board members and senior staff on an annual basis.

Have the board and senior staff reviewed the conflict-of-interest policy and completed and signed disclosure statements within the past year?
Response Not Provided
Board Composition ?
Why does this matter? The best boards are composed of individuals who bring a variety of skills, perspectives, backgrounds, and resources to tackle the complex and strategic challenges confronting their organizations. BoardSource recommends that boards commit to diversity and inclusion by establishing written policies and practices, which include strategic and intentional recruitment of diverse board members, continual commitment to inclusivity, and equal access to board leadership opportunities.

Does the board ensure an inclusive board member recruitment process that results in diversity of thought and leadership?
Response Not Provided
Board Performance ?
Why does this matter? Boards need to regularly assess their own performance. Doing so ensures that they are being intentional about how they govern their organization, which is a critical component of effective board leadership. BoardSource recommends that a board conduct a self-assessment of its performance a minimum of once every three years to ensure that it is staying on track with its roles and responsibilities.

Has the board conducted a formal, written self-assessment of its performance within the past three years?
Response Not Provided

This section is not a requirement for any of the GuideStar Nonprofit Profile participation levels - Bronze, Silver, or Gold. Instead, it is a voluntary questionnaire that empowers organizations to share information on the demographics of who works in and leads organizations. To protect the identity of individuals, we do not display sexual orientation or disability information for organizations with fewer than 15 staff.

Any values displayed in this section are percentages of the total number of individuals in each category (e.g. 20% of all Board members for X organization are female).
