Partnership Manager

In this role I have a particular responsibility for mobilising financial and non-financial resources from, and strengthening the organisation’s funding relationships with, European based development donors, including governmental agencies, bilateral aid agencies, corporate companies, and relevant EU institutions, trusts and foundations. Working with senior program leadership and other teams, I lead in prioritizing WI institutional relationships, develop tools and systems to support partnership development and management activities, and provide strategic and technical support in the management of specific projects that are uniquely dependent on partnerships.

Beyond my work, I am human right defender and climate justice is  yet another frontier of my work. Our work is crucial but often underappreciated, and as such Wetlands International is to me a platform which I will use to encourage action on climate change and other intersecting systemic issues.
