Work experience
I worked for seven years within a French research institute (INRA), on livestock farming systems and territorial development. I developed analysis of producer’s strategies, market chain organization and resources management. I was mostly on french and sahelian fields (Mali, Tchad, Senegal), and worked very closely with producers and technical staffs. I’ve decided for now to use my competences for improving the actions of civil society. By working closely with french and southern partners, I improve my understanding of stakes about combating desertification in sahelian areas. _x000D_
