“My personal drive is to build on people’s strengths, coaching them to look beyond existing mind sets, and providing them with new perspectives. Sustainable development is built on mutual respect and reciprocity.”

Ben facilitates the strengthening of organisations’ PME systems according to a practical and strongly results-oriented approach. Programme evaluations serve as the basis for learning and critical reflection by staff on their successes. Ben connects food security, market systems development, use of natural resources, and climate change adaptation, in order to provide smallholder farmers with optimal results and sustained impact.
