Role: Climate Change & Resilience Team Leader

Team: Programmes and Policy team

Profile:

I am an environmental scientist with a background in international development, specialising in climate change adaptation, natural resource management, disaster risk reduction and resilience. I joined CARE in June 2015, and my role involves advising CARE’s country offices on design and implementation of climate change and resilience projects, conducting training and overseeing research. Having a global remit within CARE has led me to work with inspiring colleagues in Bangladesh, Pakistan, Niger, Ethiopia, Somalia, Kenya, Zimbabwe, Syria, Nepal, Tanzania, Mozambique, and many other countries, to help the most vulnerable people facing the acute impacts of climate change.

I have lived in South Africa, Nigeria, Zambia, Malaysia and Nigeria, and worked with various agencies and consultancies on projects ranging from national climate change adaptation plans and evaluating national climate change challenge funds in Nigeria, to working with communities to set up natural resource management committees and Farmer Field Schools in Zambia, to developing university level climate change policy courses and international climate change conferences for government departments in the Caribbean.

Programmes and Policy team

The Programmes and Policy team is responsible for overseeing programme quality and multiplying the impact of our programming by encouraging governments, business and donors – based on the evidence we witness on the ground – to adopt policy reforms that support the world’s poorest people and communities. Working in partnership with our country programmes, women’s rights organisations and civil society, we put forward the views of the most marginalised to governments, including the UK government, multinational businesses and global institutions and press the case for change. In short, our goal is to change the rules of the game that keep people poor.
