It is with great sadness that we communicate the passing of our friend and colleague Sheila Onzere. Sheila was a research scientist in the Humanitarian Response and Development Lab (HURDL) at the Marsh Institute. She was a talented social scientist who made contributions to the fields of development, livelihoods, climate adaptation, and forest governance out of proportion to her all-too-short career. Sheila was also a singular colleague, supportive, kind, and collaborative to the core. She will be greatly missed by all who knew her. Donations can be made in her honor to The Sheila Navalia Onzere Memorial Fund for African Women Social Scientists.
