YEP Role

In the Young Expert Programme I worked at the cooperation between SONEB and Brabant Water. SONEB is the national drinking water company of Benin in West Africa, Brabant Water is the drinking water company that provides the province of Noord-Brabant in the Netherlands with drinking water. In my role as young expert I worked on hydrology and focus especially on the Okpara basin and the ORIO-project that aims to secure drinking water supply for the city of Parakou in 2025.

I am an engineer in hydrology and I like to work with basins, dams and drainage. I want to help the project further by doing analyses and calculations with the data. In this current project I would like to use these skills to realize project progress in the ORIO-project and explore more of the whole urban water cycle.
