I work as a modeller in the project Creating climate resilient wetlands for waterbirds and communities across the African-Eurasian flyway.
I model the current distributions of waterbirds in the flyway and how climate change might alter them. With this information it will be possible to assess the vulnerability of wetlands and waterbirds to climate change and help to target investments into enhancing the resilience of wetlands.
I am fascinated by the diversity of wetland habitats and their major role for biodiversity and human well-being. But many wetlands are threatened and stronger protection is need.
