I am a Primatologist specialized in captive and wild nonhuman primate sociobiology. I currently live in northern Congo where for the past 2 years I have been coordinating a program called Sustainable Wildlife Management - SWM aiming at creating the conditions for rural communities o manage wildlife resources themselves, taking ownership and exploiting them in a sustainable way. I am responsible for aspects related to the development of alternative activities to hunting (livestock farming), development of social marketing campaigns for more sustainable consumption of animal protein, and mitigation of risk of zoonoses. I therefore often find myself having to involve stakeholders, that's why I am joining WildHub cours focussing on Stakeholders' engagement!
Additionally, as part of the WildHub community, I am expecting sharing experiences and lessons learned with others on similar interventions with local communities in Conservation and Food Security/Rural Development. I am also interested in following training courses regarding methodologies to be applied to engage rural communities as well as communication in Conservation (storytelling, social marketing campaigns...).
