ICLEI – Local Governments for Sustainability
Barbara is leading the group working on Urban Water Management within the Sustainable Resources, Climate and Resilience team at the European Secretariat of ICLEI – Local Governments for Sustainability.
Working with and for cities for more than two decades she has managed several European and global projects in the areas of drinking, waste and stormwater management at local level, including with relation to climate change adaptation and resilience, blue-green infrastructure, and nature-based solutions.
Throughout her career Barbara helped build the capacity of urban water stakeholders by acting as a broker between science, policy and practice. She has also been a steady advocate for raising the role of cities as key players in the water sector, such as in the frame of the local and regional authority processes of the World Water Fora.
