Maxime Eiselin | Senior Expert Nature-based Solutions

As an expert in nature-based solutions, Maxime Eiselin pursues his dream of keeping nature healthy by offering green alternatives to grey development scenarios. He joined IUCN NL in 2014 after obtaining his research master degree in environmental science.

Maxime is leading the initiatives that use nature-based solutions to address societal challenges in Africa, South America and Asia. He advises on ecosystem management approaches in the design and implementation of climate and development policy.

Next to this, Maxime works on developing green business cases that tackle the impacts and consequences of climate change. He combines this work with impact monitoring for various programs using innovative digital technologies.

Maxime sees nature conservation as a multidisciplinary effort. He engages with organisations to bridge research, policy and practice gaps on nature-based solutions, while making sure that the best possible trade-offs are achieved for people and nature.
