Born in 1943, Sergio Regazzoni was a leader of the Swiss YCW, and later became an international leader of the International YCW, first at European level and finally as international treasurer.

He worked for CCFD-Terre Solidaire from 1983-94, building a broad network of development workers and activists across Asia.

In 1994, he became director of the Centre Lebret, now the Centre Développement et Civilisations Lebret- IRFED.

He died in 2009 after a short illness.
