I work for CARE International, a humanitarian and development agency active in 100 countries in the world with the objective to alleviate poverty and advance sustainable development. Here I lead CARE International’s work on Climate Change and Resilience and bring experience working on climate change and resilience from both the INGO and governmental perspective. Furthermore, I worked for the ILO in Zimbabwe and Indonesia and was closely involved in the climate negotiations at COP13-15 as a policy advisor on behalf of the ACT Alliance.
With a background in development studies; I spent my early career working for CARE in Angola on gender equality and food and nutrition security. At the moment, I am leading and coordinating an international team gathered in the CARE Climate Change and Resilience Platform that works towards the integration of climate change and resilience across CARE’s development and humanitarian work. A resilient future must also be a just future and that is why I look forward to collaborate with the 4TU Resilience Centre to develop low cost and easy accessible technological solutions to increase poor communities’ resilience.
