Biography

Lahsen Ababouch, a national of Morocco and Italy, joined FAO in June 2000. He is currently senior Advisor at the Department of Fisheries and Aquaculture of FAO where he held the post of Director, Policy and Economics Division until he retired in May 2016. Before joining FAO, he was Professor at the King Hassan II Institute of Agronomy and Veterinary Medicine (IAV Hassan II), in Rabat, Morocco, where in addition to teaching and research in agricultural and food industries, he held advisory positions for research, outreach and bilateral trade agreements (SPS/TBT agreements).
 
He holds an Agricultural and Food Engineering Degree from ENSIAA (Paris, France), an Agronomy Engineering Degree + a Doctorat Es-Sciences Agronomiques, both from IAV Hassan II (Rabat, Morocco) and a Ph.D in Food Science and Nutrition from the University of Minnesota (USA). In 1996, he was awarded the King Baudouin Award for Excellence in Research by the International Foundation for Science (IFS, Stockholm, Sweden); in 2004, the Distinguished Leadership Award for Internationals by the University of Minnesota (USA) and in 2009, the Special Recognition Award of the International Association of Fish Professionals. He has wide experience in policy and strategy development, project formulation, training, research, technical assistance and capacity building in agriculture, food systems and nutrition, technology, safety and quality and international food trade.

Ababouch is author/co-author of 107 peer-reviewed papers, books or book chapters in food science and nutrition. Author of 186 keynote or expert communications at national and international conferences. Formulator of tens of projects and consultancy reports on agriculture and agro-industry development.
