Stan Maessen

I have been a civil engineer and a specialist on the urban environment with over 20 years of professional experience in infrastructure, sanitation and waste management in Western & Eastern Europe, Sub-sahara Africa and Asia. As sanitation advisor and programme manager, I am committed to civil society participation in policy formation, operation of rural and urban services, urban and rural upgrading and environmental management.

I have more than 10 years of management and executive experience in smaller and bigger programmes. This has lead to a specialisation in programme management, participation and community partnerships; environmental management systems; good governance participation issues for local authorities; and civil society strengthening. My professional skills include programme development; coaching; project assessment; planning; monitoring and evaluation; facilitation and training.
