Comlan Guy-Elvis Semondji

I am French-speaking, Beninese, originally from a West African country where I have been living since my birth and working for 15 years. I am 39 years old, married and have two (02) children. I hold a Master of Science in Environmental Geosciences and Sustainable Development and a Master in Geography and Land Management.

I am currently working at the Ministry of Living Environment and Sustainable Development, precisely at the General Directorate of Environment and Climate. I am involved in adaptation to climate change where I technically support the UNFCCC focal point and the management of pollution and nuisances. Previously, I worked at the Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Fisheries where I was involved in rural development, rural development and equipment, hydro-agricultural development, aquaculture development and infrastructure, research and development.

For nearly 15 years, I have been working in the environment, climate and adaptation to climate change. I would like to strengthen my knowledge in leadership in climate governance, diplomacy and negotiation.
