Hi, I have been working with ENDA Energy, Environment and Development based in Dakar, Senegal since 2009. My expertise is on climate change vulnerability assessment and adaptation (V&A) decision making. My work includes building capacities of CBOs/CSOs/NGOs, governmental institutions on climate change V&A using participatory action research methods and tools. I have conducted a number of case studies in West Africa on community-based adaptation to Climate Change.

Currently, I am also interested in enhancing resilience to Loss and Damage associated with climate variability and change in West and Central Africa.
