Dr. Griffin is from Hanuabada Village, Papua New Guinea.

The organization said Dr. Griffin “brings a wealth of experience and a commitment to the sustainable management and use of the Coral Triangle’s vital marine resources”.

It added:

“Dr. Griffin, a distinguished professional who most recently served as the Vice-Chancellor of the University of Papua New Guinea, is set to lead the CTI-CFF Regional Secretariat for a tenure of four years. His extensive knowledge of the unique challenges facing the Coral Triangle region and his passion for fostering collaboration will undoubtedly contribute to the continued success and progress of the CTI-CFF initiative.”
