    Dr. Ferdinand Nabiswa Makhanu

Dr. Ferdinand Nabiswa Makhanu is a capacity development and disaster risk management expert with over 29 years’ experience. As an educationist, the experience transcends academia as besides teaching, training and research, Ferdinand has been involved in humanitarian activities as a team leader on disaster risk reduction (DRR) in communities often geared towards sustainable livelihoods and community resilience.  His career objective is to empower humanity on sustainable livelihoods based on ecological economics and informed risk taking. As a professional, he derives his strength from a blend of three fields: teaching, entrepreneurship and disaster risk management. He is motivated being in teams that seek to deliver especially on risk management, social development and community resiliency. This motivation is anchored on the fact that Kenya as a country is facing many challenges among them being youth unemployment and mental health; corruption; unsustainable deployment of devolved funds due to low uptake capacity and perennial resource based conflicts together with globalization of business risks.
