Abdellah El Bouchikhi is 22 years old. He was born and raised in Fes, home of one of the oldest medieval cities in the world that is classified as a UNESCO world heritage site, located in Morocco. Majoring in civil engineering, he’s currently pursuing a master degree in Transportation planning and mobility.
During his university years, he worked for a non-profit organisation called Enactus EHTP, where he embraced the potential of social entrepreneurship as an efficient apparatus of poverty alleviation and employment generation. In his free time, he is a Pro-life, staunch advocate of human rights and an active member of the World Youth Alliance, an international NGO seeking to promote a culture of life-based on individual rights, family cohesion, and personal development.
He believes that mainstreaming resilience is instrumental in achieving lasting progress. Consequently, as a professional priority, he hopes to induce a paradigm shift in how PPPs internationally incorporate long-term resilience in infrastructure investments by leveraging global climate finance sources. Thereby developing climate-smart infrastructure that preserves environmental sustainability and ensures availability and continuity of infrastructure services.
