Profile of the Expert
Dr. Fouda is currently the Minister Advisor on Biodiversity.  He is also member of Multidisciplinary Panel (MEP) of the Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES) and also member of the Animal Committee of CITES.  He is the chairman IUCN National Committee and member of SCOPE National Committee at the Academy of Scientific Research and Technology and is a member of the center of environmental studies at Alexandria Bibliotheca. He is Chair and Co-chair of several international and regional marine workshops (EBSA, Invasive species of CBD, MPAs). He joined the Egyptian Environmental Affairs Agency (EEAA) as Director of Nature Conservation Sector (NCS) in February 2000. His work involved implementation of the National Biodiversity Conservation strategy and Action Plans through developing and managing a network of 30 protected areas (about 15% of Egypt's territory), Biodiversity Development, and Egypt's commitment to international and regional agreements and conventions dealing with Environmental protection and nature conservation. He was in charge of many projects (more than 30 million US$.) funded by donor countries and international agencies (e.g. Global Environmental Facility (GEF) for conservation of natural resources in Egypt.  He is the national focal point for several international conventions (e.g. Biodiversity, CMS, Ramsar).  He is interested in wildlife, conservation, marine biodiversity and economics of protected areas.  He is also in-charge of several non-governmental scientific and environmental organizations (e.g. ornithological society of Egypt) as well as member of board of several learned societies and governmental institutions.   Prior joining EEAA, he was the Assistant Dean for Extension at the College of Agriculture, Sultan Qaboos University (SQU); UNEP & NOAA Consultant and Coordinator of UNEP Task Team on Land-based Sources Affecting the Marine Environment of ROPME, and Implications of Climate Change on Marine Environment and Fisheries of the Red Sea and Gulf of Aden.  He is currently a member of the Global Task Team on the Implications of Climate Change on Coral Reefs and the European Academy for Environmental Affairs.  At SQU, he taught several courses on Coastal Zone Management, Advanced Marine Biology, Ichthyology, Fisheries Biology, Fisheries Research Techniques and Fisheries Management, and conducted ecological survey on mangrove communities, coral reefs and artisanal fisheries of Oman.  He reviewed many fisheries and marine environmental projects in Egypt, Saudi Arabia and Oman.  Prior joining SQU, he was based at Al-Azhar University, Cairo teaching marine biology and fisheries, in addition to conducting research programs related mainly to the Red Sea and Suez Canal ecosystems.  He served as technical member on several national committees (e.g. Marine Science, Fisheries Research Council, Natural History Museum of Egypt) at the Academy of Scientific Research and Technology.  Since his return home in 1980 after obtaining his Ph.D. from U.K., he supervised more than 120 M.Sc. and Ph.D. thesis and published about 200 papers and articles on marine conservation, marine policy, mangroves, coral reefs, marine biodiversity, fisheries biology and ecology, marine invertebrates, environmental pollution and environmental impact assessment. Visited marine and fisheries institution in Europe, U.S.A., Africa, Asia and Australia and attended more than 200 conferences
