Marcus initially trained as civil engineer involved in the construction of large infrastructure projects before pursuing an interest in international development. He has thirty years development cooperation experience working for international organisations across Africa, Asia and Europe, with a strong focus on climate and disaster resilience, and risk-informed development policies and practice. Between 2007-2017, Marcus was the founding director of the Global Network for Disaster Reduction (GNDR), established to strengthen the ability of non-state actors and at-risk communities to work collaboratively, in partnership with relevant stakeholders to reduce climate and disaster risk, and strengthen societal resilience. This understanding of collaborative working across different actors, sectors and scales, together with an ability to take a system’s-wide approach, provided the strategic insight and impetus to establish Resilience Solutions Associates.
Accordingly, RSA has a unique capability to form multi-disciplinary project teams that can share perspectives and blend external and local knowledge to deliver fully-integrated consultancy services that can strengthen coherence and unlock synergies to solve some of the world’s most complex challenges across climate change; disaster, environment and sustainable development domains.
