Please tell us about your AFECO experience  and its benefits to your development

Coming from a development studies background, I was immediately drawn to the most policy-related classes offered by the MSc, therefore I majored in Agricultural and Development Policy.

What is your current occupation?

I work for the Alliance of Bioversity International and CIAT (CGIAR) as Program Delivery Officer in the context of a JPO program funded by the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
