Mr Constant-Serge Bounda is the UNFPA Madagascar Representative and Country Director for Comoros, Mauritius and Seychelles from May 2017 until now.

With more than 29 years at the United Nations level in programme leadership and representation, planning and strategic management, policy dialogue, advocacy and forging partnership, prior of joining UNFPA, Serge has been working in the last two decades for various UN agencies such as ILO, WHO, UNOG, WMO, UN-ICTR and UNEP where he was also serving as Special Advisor of the Nobel Peace Prize, Late Hon, Wangari Muta Maathai.

Mr Constant-Serge Bounda was the Chief of the UNFPA Liaison Office to the African Union (AU) and the Economic Commission (ECA) before his appointment to Madagascar. In this capacity, he has been very instrumental by positioning UNFPA as a valued and trusted partner of both AUC and ECA, as evidenced by the inclusion of key ICPD issues and UNFPA’s priorities (SRHR, MH, FP, demographic dividend, child marriage) in major AU policy frameworks, outreach campaigns, political decisions/resolutions and in their programmatic work. His outstanding advocacy, political outreach and mobilization of key players have highly contributed in convincing Heads of States and Government to devote the two AU Summits for 2017 to the theme “Harnessing Demographic Dividend through investments in youth” therefore strategically aligning AU and UNFPA core priorities.

Apart from all this, he also has strong experience of dealing with Regional Economic Communities (RECs) and countries at regional and sub-regional levels. Furthermore, he has background and expertise on environment and development in the context of climate change and El-Niño which affect enormously the East and South African Region.
