My name is Melania Peter, I am a motivated professional biodiversity Expert in the National Ministry of Environment and Forestry, South Sudan. with over ten years of experience in strategic protection, conservation, and management of biodiversity. I held a master’s degree in environment and natural resources management and aim passionate about ecotourism as it promotes protection of natural habitats and wildlife. Having been a student at SUNX Malta pursuing diploma in climate friendly travel, I possess vast knowledge and experience in Tourism and Hospitality. I believe sustainable tourism is the steeping stone in our journey to address climate crisis and achieving net zero greenhouse gas emission by 2050. As a chapter leader I would like work hand in hand with my local climate champion to empower the local communities through promoting sustainable ecotourism that improves rural livelihood and biodiversity conservation.
