Climate Change, Conflict, and Migration

September 19, 2018, 11:45 AM1:00 PM


Andrew Stancioff is a geologist, natural resource planner, analyst, and manager with 35 years of experience in geology, hydrology, agriculture, fisheries, forestry, climatology, and oceanography. He has 40 years of experience in developing countries and 24 years in Africa.

During the last ten years, Mr. Stancioff has worked to develop methods and models to monitor and evaluate poverty and conflict in areas under stress from overpopulation and overuse of natural resources and other forms of degradation. He has been involved in modeling, demographic health and environmental data in support of early warning systems.

For six years, he mapped the geologic, mineral, hydraulic and natural resources of Zaire, Guinea, Central Africa, and Mauritania. From 1991‑96, he was the USAID "team leader" at the AGRHYMET Center in Niamey, Niger where he developed maps for agricultural and health development projects for 13 African countries.

In recent years, Mr. Stancioff has focused climate change and its effects on water resources and on reducing atmospheric Carbon Dioxide by reforesting areas in north Africa. He is presently seeking support for an effort to reforest some of the most appropriate areas in the Sahel of Africa to sequester Carbon and to provide improved living conditions to people in that region.

Lunch choices, catered by Jorgensen's are roast beef with lettuce and tomato, pesto chicken wrap, or vegetarian wrap. All are served with soup and cookie etc. Lunch costs $12.
