Her background is in agriculture, innovation systems research, impact assessment and social learning, and how research can contribute to climate-resilient, nutrient-dense and inclusive agri-food systems in Southern Africa.
She is using multi-stakeholder and policy engagement approaches to co-create and support conducive conditions for fair and profitable agri-businesses, specifically those that can stimulate diversification and integration of crops and livestock, context-specific and considering variable and changing climate.
She is working on participatory future scenario development and integrated ex ante impact analyses of climate change and other shocks on rural and urban low-income households, for devising agricultural development strategies coupled with climate change adaptation and mitigation, gender and equity perspectives.
Supporting communication sciences her work contributes to strengthen stakeholder networks at local to national levels to reach their impact pathways. Evaluation approaches are being developed to harvest rich lessons from engagements, ensuring that communications speak to diverse and multi-level networks.
In her work she engages with national and international partners in action-oriented research, collaborative research policy practice approaches, communications, knowledge products and publications.
How can we deliver a better future for Africa? As Africa has huge opportunities to deliver healthy foods, locally produced, in a way that capacitates local producers and value chains, our task is to create local ownership and the motivation to collaborate. This will help improving capacities to transform agri-business, and for people being prepared to deal with the vagaries of climate.
