Professor El Hassan Sayouty of the University Hassan II of Casablanca, Morocco, died in the Ethiopian Air crash near Addis Ababa on 10 March
Professor Sayouty was a committed member of the Expert Group on Resource Management for many years and led the UNFC-AMREC activities as the Chair of the Social and Environmental Leadership Task Force of the AMREC Working Group.
Professor Sayouty was going to Nairobi to participate in the Fourth United Nations Environmental Assembly (UNEA). He was one of the organizers and speakers at the session on “Mining and the environment: The African framework to address impacts through innovative solutions”.
