                          Bio: Mr von Maltitz is a systems ecologist and rural development specialist, employed by the CSIR since 1989. He trained under Prof Brian Walker and Prof Mike Mentis at the University of the Witwatersrand, and completed an MSc doing research in the Nylsvley Nature Reserve. Since graduating he has fifteen years experience in natural resource management in developing communities. Until 2000 he was the business area manager for the Common Property Resource Management group of the Natural Resources and Rural Development Programme, and as such had a responsibility for management and research dealing with the interface between rural communities and the natural environment. This research has focussed on communities in areas of communal land tenure and on the unique problems associated with resource management in these areas. For three years he was acting Business area Manager for the Environmental Economics and Policy business area. Mr von Maltitz has extensive experience in managing multi-disciplinary teams engaged in both short and multi-year projects. Currently Mr von Maltitz has a crosscutting role to develop a focus in natural resource based rural development and the management of large integrated projects within the programme.
