Programme Manager Community Resilience

As Programme Manager Community Resilience I am responsible for policy development, advocacy, and programme implementation on community resilience in a variety of programmes in Africa, Asia, and Central America. Strengthening community resilience is a core element of Wetlands International’s approach to safeguard and restore wetlands for people and nature.

For well over a decade I have been working in the field of Community Resilience, Disaster Risk Reduction, Climate Change Adaptation, and Humanitarian aid. These topics are at the core of my work with Wetlands International now, where we aim to inspire and mobilize through best practices and evidence, and aim to upscale efforts to revive wetlands and strengthen community resilience to reach transformational change throughout society.
