Programme Head Climate Adaptation and Risk Reduction

Global Office

I am heading our risk reduction and climate adaptation programme, promoting the role of wetlands for protecting people against hazards such as floods, droughts and storms. In developing ecosystem-based solutions towards resilience, I work closely with development organisations as well as with the civil engineering sector.

For my entire life I have been passionate about wetlands. I spend much of my free time in the field, ringing birds, doing wetland inventories or simply enjoying the sheer beauty of nature.
