Michael has successfully managed numerous major international environmental planning projects on behalf of national governments, international finance institutions, private companies and NGOs. His breadth of experience, across numerous industrial sectors and assignments in over 40 countries, has provided Michael with the capacity to identify good practices for different situations, and therefore to identify practical and affordable solutions.
Michael’s outstanding track-record in project management has covered detailed environmental studies, including design and management of data collection programmes for baseline studies. He has particular experience in managing teams of technical experts to develop applicable solutions based on the priorities identified in these baseline studies.
Michael has extensive experience in managing solid waste management projects, but also has carried out numerous other projects to improve environmental protection and social performance. Many clients contract him for monitoring and evaluation assignments based on his breadth of experience, strong organisational, presentation and reporting skills.
