I contribute to Wetlands International’s work to improve governance and management of water, sanitation and hygiene services as well as the water resources on which these services depend. Currently I coordinate our work within the water and sanitation international program and for more than ten years I have provided support to our network offices all around the globe.
I believe in the work I do because wetlands are one of the most productive ecosystems in the world and they are also fascinating places of outstanding beauty. Wetlands provide water and food and therefore people (and businesses!) in this planet depend on them. I fiercely believe that conserving and managing wetlands wisely is the only way to a sustainable future for humankind. Before joining Wetlands International I worked for the UNESCO Man and the Biosphere Program and for Provita in Venezuela, my home country.
