Sumarie Jordan, Ambassador

Behailu Birhanu Wolde

Scientist – Addis Ababa, Ethiopia

I am an assistant professor of hydrogeology based at Addis Ababa Science and Technology University. I am an African Fellow in Groundwater Management working with Addis Ababa University (AAU) and the University of Oxford under the REACH (water security for the poor) program. I am also an Affiliate Member of the African Academy of Sciences (AAS) and have conducted research on surface and groundwater modeling, integrated water management, environmental impact assessment, and geographic system analysis. Recently, I have tested a data-intensive methodological approach on dynamic integration of surface and groundwater systems by using Water Evaluation and Planning (WEAP) and three-dimensional groundwater flow (MODFLOW) models. The methodology was applied to evaluate water supply sources of Addis Ababa city, in which impacts of natural (climate change/variability) and anthropogenic stresses (population, water supply expansion schemes) have been evaluated.

GlobalConscience.World Ambassadors

We know how committed our Ambassadors are to being part of the solution to what scientists and economists consider to be one of the world’s most crucial problems. Which is why we provide each of our Ambassadors with information, guidance, and tools they can use to become effective climate change influencers on social media. Our Ambassadors help publicize the GlobalConscience.World message and share educational resources any way they can.

They use their individual skills to educate others and show them what each of us can do, as individuals, to fight global warming from our own homes. Our ultimate goal is to have a worldwide network of Ambassadors who communicate with each other and who can help put pressure on corporations and governments to do what is right, because we believe the changes the world needs will happen only with the support of concerned citizens in every country. And that means every one of our Ambassadors can know he or she is not only part of the solution, but a leader in helping to create a better future for everyone.
