Professional Experience:
Mr. Anada Tiega has 33 years of experience in managing large portfolios and complex biodiversity and climate change programs at the regional, national and sub-national levels for poor and disadvantaged populations throughout West and Central Africa. He has in-depth experience managing transboundary programs focused on climate change mitigation and adaptation, through the promotion of ecosystem-based mitigation and adaptation.
He has been working for the USAID-funded West Africa Biodiversity and Climate Change Program from June 2015 to date. He is leading site-based activities on coastal landscapes, upland forests, watersheds, and farmlands, drawing lessons, to strengthen policies and practical actions at local, national, and regional levels to improve natural resource management and maintain healthy, resilient nature-based livelihoods in West Africa.

In his capacity as Secretary General of the Ramsar Convention on Wetlands, Anada Tiega initiated the “ Danone Livelihoods program” which started in 2008, when Danone, the Ramsar Convention on Wetlands and the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) created the Danone Fund for Nature with the following objectives: restore degraded ecosystems, redevelop local economies and combat climate change. A successful pilot project in Senegal - the largest mangrove restoration project in the world with 100 million mangroves motivated Danone to open the fund to outside investors. The Danone Fund for Nature thus evolved into an independent entity and was rebranded as the Livelihoods Carbon Fund in 2011, with nine other companies joining. To date, it has planted 130 million trees in Africa, Asia and Latin America that will capture 10 million tons of CO2.
