Faluku Nakulopa


Solutions for existing and future challenges in water governance, Helmholtz-Centre for Environmental Research, Germany.

Faluku is an alumnus of the Interuniversity Program in Water Resources Engineering, IUPWARE, organized by KU Leuven and Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB) in Belgium. His thesis was on the ‘Evaluation of high-resolution precipitation products over the Rwenzori mountains in Uganda,’ under the supervision of Prof. Wim Thiery.

Prior to that, Faluku obtained his first degree, a Bachelor’s of Science in Agricultural Engineering, from Makerere University, Uganda.

He has fairly worked with the private sector and Non-Governmental Organizations in Uganda. Mainly in the sectors of Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH); Irrigation; and Water Security. Through his work and academic experience, Faluku became more cognizant of the existing gap between the scientists, policy makers and the citizenry. This cemented his interest in Water Governance, and here he is hoping to find an adaptive intersection of the three in the plight of the changing climate.
