I have several years experience in project design, monitoring and evaluation in the food security, education, water and environment sectors. I have supported development projects in Kenya, South Sudan and Somalia while working for Caritas Switzerland and FAO Somalia.
In my current position as Project Development Officer (PDO) for Africa at CABI, I work closely with other members of the Project Development Group to support scientists across international development and the knowledge business.
CABI has a regional centre for Africa in Nairobi. Agriculture is essential for sub-Saharan Africa’s economic growth and yet average crop yields in Africa are among the lowest in the world. Over 80% rely on it but many face challenges in growing sufficient good quality produce.
