I am a climate change and agriculture professional; I joined CABI in 2023 as a Climate Change Expert for Asia.
In my current capacity at CABI, I am working with CABI’s centres in Asia to provide technical guidance and support on project designing and implementation to enhance CABI’s actions and visibility in climate change and climate-smart agriculture.
Previously, I worked at the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), Regional Office for Asia and Pacific where I engaged closely with the ASEAN Climate Resilience Network, facilitating their participation in various UNFCCC events and supporting their work on climate-smart agriculture and the Koronivia Joint Work on Agriculture (KJWA). I also oversaw the technical implementation of the FAO-UNDP- led global programme on Scaling up Climate Ambition on Land Use and Agriculture through Nationally Determined Contributions and National Adaptation Plans (SCALA) in Cambodia, Nepal, Thailand and Mongolia.
Other previous experience includes work on climate change adaptation and gender and vulnerability assessments in international organizations such as the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), Indian Agricultural Research Institute and the CGIAR Programme on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS).
