Mr .Vianny Ahimbisibwe | landscape restoration | Young Scientist Award

👨‍🏫Profile Summary

🌲I am an interdisciplinary professional dedicated to working at the intersection of practice, science, and policy, particularly focusing on forest-related issues, including Nature-Based Solutions (NBS) such as forest and farm landscape restoration. My expertise spans areas such as climate change, biodiversity, livelihood, gender, tenure, and forest and landscape restoration. With a background in European policy review and experience in Africa (Ethiopia and Uganda), I aim to break down barriers through research, technical advice, project management, and the development and testing of guidelines, safeguards, and policy frameworks.

I am passionate about contributing to the efficient and sustainable management of natural resources, governance, gender, tenure, benefit-sharing mechanisms, and scaling up restoration best practices to achieve the UN SDGs globally. Seeking a career in operational implementation, I thrive in engaging with multi-stakeholders and coordinating inter-agency efforts. As a self-motivated individual, I possess strong analytical, project management, interpersonal leadership, and coordination skills.🌍
