I am the Coordinator of the Infrastructure Project “ Projet de réduction de l’impact des infrastructures sur les écosystèmes côtiers en Afrique de l’Ouest (PRISE)”.
I believe my job brings me closer to nature and offers me a platform to help communities that are most vulnerable to the impacts of climate change.
Coming from a riverine country, I have lived the story that wetlands are first and foremost a livelihood support system. It is important that our plans always include augmenting ecosystem services for poor communities along the coast. Natural and anthropogenic synergies must be considered in everything we do.
