Donald Robadue Jr

Associate coastal resources manager

My expertise is in policy analysis, strategy development, the design and management of local and state-level coastal resources management programs in the U.S. and developing countries, and national programs in developing countries, as part of the University of Rhode Island's Coastal Resources Center (CRC). I currently work in Tanzania and Ghana as a coastal planner, co-authored the new Coastal Climate Change Adaptation Guidebook and serve as an information specialist for the USAID-funded global BALANCED Project, which advocates an integrated approach to population, health and environment. In Rhode Island I helped develop Rhode Island’s Coastal Resources Management Program, Marine Resources Development Plan.  I was a senior technical advisor to the USAID Mexico Conservation of Critical Ecosystems program and the Ecuador Coastal Resources Management program. I am a lead trainer in CRC training courses in English and Spanish. We recently completed a three week course for international participants on coastal management and climate change adaptation.  I have a Masters in Community Planning, a B.A. in Sociology, and am a PhD candidate in information science at the University at Albany.
