Omonlola Nadine Worou

Scientific Coordinator, Senegal
International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI)


What’s your role at AICCRA and the journey that led you here?   

I'm the scientific coordinator for AICCRA in Senegal (under ILRI's Sustainable Livestock System Program). I provide leadership and guidance, ensuring the delivery of outputs and outcomes for AICCRA's activities in Senegal, including partnership strengthening and the generation and dissemination of knowledge from research and innovations.

I have more than 20 years of experience working on climate change challenges, system modelling and forest resource management. I graduated from the University of Bonn (Germany) with a PhD in Agronomy focused on crop modelling. This helps me to have a systems approach perspective to ensure holistic approaches for the most relevant key issues to be addressed along project impact pathways.

Why do you believe AICCRA can help to deliver a climate-smart future for Africa?

AICCRA is developing and supporting ingenious partnerships for the delivery of climate-smart innovations at scale by working closely with our partners and stakeholders in the private and public sectors. AICCRA commits to delivering evidence-based solutions to build sustainable business models and provide a unique opportunity for connections between international, regional and national networks to maximize knowledge, innovation sharing, capacity building and inputs to solutions for the needs of our stakeholders.
