Position: Advisor Transport and Climate Change
Location: Colombia, Bogotá

A sustainable transformation of the transport sector offers great possibilities – it can bring about social justice, improve citizens’ life quality considerably and help protect the climate. That is why I am excited to work in the projects IMPROVE and ProMOVIS. In the IMPROVE project, I support the Colombian Ministry of Energy in developing regulatory instruments to mitigate emissions from new vehicles. In the ProMOVIS project, I support efforts to make transport systems in Colombia more sustainable. Before joining GIZ, I gained experience in climate and energy policy in the Netherlands, Mexico and Germany.

I hold a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration and graduated from Maastricht University with a Master’s in Sustainability Science and Policy. I’m really glad to be able to contribute to the pressing global reduction of GHG emissions and I’m pleased to contribute to improving the transportation system – a sector that affects the quality of life for all of us every day.
