I've been working with environ-mental management, where  emphasis has been on the natural environment, pollution, resource issues, land management and use of waterways. That is water resource management in broad sense.

After august 1998, I have worked within the public food sector, with special responsibility for drinking water regulation and supervision.


I have extensive experience with dissemination of environmental issues, both through different reports and as speaker.
