Biography: Prof. Ahmed Yousef has completed his PhD in 1999 from Mansoura University and postdoctoral studies from Western Michigan University, USA. He is Ex-Chairman of Studies and Projects Sector at the Egyptian Ministry of Agriculture and is now the Professor of Water Resources in DRC, Egypt. He is Editor, Academic Editor and Associate Editor as well as reviwer in Some International Journals. He has gained wide experience for more than 25 years in various management related, water resources policy, hydrology, hydrogeology, sedimentation, environmental planning, ICZM, disaster risk management of climate change, desertification and agriculture plans, transboundary strategic action programmes, economics and social issues, and documents. He has been working as a consultant and team leader for a number of development projects sponsored by the World Bank, WFP, EC, FOA, ADB, Nile Basin Initiative and United Nation related water resources policy, hydrogeology, dams, protected areas, climate change and agriculture plans. He has published more than 60 scientific papers.
