International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN)

I work for IUCN in the Eastern and Southern African region where I mainly work with Ecosystem-based Disaster Risk Reduction. Our focus area is for the moment the Western Indian Ocean countries (Mauritius, Madagascar, Seychelles and Comoros) where cyclones and floods are reoccurring hazards that cause massive damage and with climate change the frequency of these events are projected to increase. As I am a Civil Engineer with focus on hydrology and hydraulics I am also involved in the IUCN water programme in the region.
