Alexander von Hildebrand

Consultant on Health and the Environment

Hello! I am 63, married, 5 children, happily living in Portugal since last year. For the last 33 years I worked as Program Manager for the World Health Organization (WHO) and the German (GIZ) and Swiss (SDC) cooperation agencies. My long-term postings were in Philippines (2,5 years), Ecuador (4 years), India (8 years), Mali (FAO, 0,5 year), Madagascar (10 years) and Peru (7 years). I also carried out short-term consultancies in other LDCs.
I started engaging with health& climate action in 2001 aiming at educating health workers at all levels on how CC impacts on health and what needs to be done.
A key tool developed in 2007 was a set of training modules that, updated in 2014, are available here:
