I am a marine ecologist with bias towards conservation, rehabilitation and sustainable utilisation of mangrove resources. I have developed expertise in the field of ecological mangroves restoration, carbon financing, integrated coastal area management, climate change mitigation/adaptations, and integrated management of mangrove areas.
Senior Expert for Operational Hydrology and Water Allocation Training holding a Doctorate degree in Civil Engineering (2008), a Master degree in Engineering Hydrology (1998) as well as a Honours diploma in Civil Engineering (1995) with more than 20 years of professional experience in national/international, partly IFI-funded projects in the water sector in Mozambique and in many SADC countries for lecturing (university level) and training (project
I am meteorologist, specializing in marine meteorology. where i work at marine and oceanography division of Kenya meteorological department.
My expertise are in Air-sea interaction, Ocean circulation, climate change on marine environment.
I am an environmental earth scientist with a bias in coastal processes and marine ecosystems conservation and management, specifically shoreline instability and beach erosion vulnerability assessment and monitoring. I also have research interests in near shore sediment and hydrodynamics influencing beach morphological dynamics.
I am also engaged in assessment of environmental accountability and governance systems in small and artisanal extractive and mining processes. I do habitats mapping for sustainable restoration and conservation.
Márcia Marques holds a MSc in Marine Biodiversity and Conservation and is a PhD candidate on Ocean Sciences, Technology and Management, with a research grant funded by the Portuguese Science Foundation.
Márcia worked as a researcher on marine and environmental issues and in parallel co-coordinated the Portuguese Hub of the Atlantic Strategy´s Assistance Mechanism. She worked on several scientific projects and networks (CYTED Ecomar, Oceangov and Marcons COST Actions and Transatlantic MPAs).
Lenice currently serves as a project manager (Science & Policy) for CORDIO East Africa. She has over nine years of experience working on development-focused projects from 2010, transitioning to more research-oriented work in 2014. Her past six years have focused on transforming coastal and marine resource management within Western Indian Ocean region (WIO) through research, encompassing multilevel climate change adaptation and governance; community-based natural resource management with a focus on artisanal fisheries management and community-driven management of marine litter.
