I have over 25 years’ experience in international development, focusing on nutrition, food security and livelihoods. Hands on experience at Action Against Hunger managing emergency food security programmes in various countries developed my passion and commitment to the nutrition environment. Time spent at Oxfam GB’s headquarters supporting country programmes and trying to ensure that global advocacy and campaigning were informed by country realities reinforced this. Later, working with a wide diversity of civil society organisations to help establish the Civil Society Mechanism (CSM) for relations with the CFS and became a member of the CFS Advisory Group. Recently, working as a consultant covering areas such as, evaluation, strategic and operational development, facilitation and capacity building.
