Director – Water and Climate Department at World Meteorological Organization

is a hydrologist, currently acting as the Director of the Climate and Water Department (CLW) at the World Meteorological Organization (WMO). His scientific background is flood forecasting, and has vast working experience in hydrology practice in the international context. Johannes Cullmann is also the Head of the CLW’s Hydrology and Water Resources (HWR) Branch where I worked as a consultant last summer. I had the pleasure to interview him briefly in his office at the WMO Secretariat (Geneva, Switzerland) despite his tight schedule and being often on missions.
