Regional specialist Africa • Strengthening the voice of local communities • Global Alliance for Green and Gender Action • Extractives & mining • Regional coordinator Regreening the Sahel • Indigenous people's rights • Palm oil

At Both ENDS, I facilitate knowledge exchange and strengthen and broaden networks of African organisations and grassroots groups fighting the same or similar battles. I analyse the rapid changes that take place in and around Africa so that we can capitalize on these changes, together with our partners. I hope to connect people, be critical where necessary and - most of all - represent the African voice. I believe in transparency, freedom and strengthening each other through collaboration, something that I also aim to do in my work with African partners.
