Ria L.

United Kingdom


I am a Food and Livelihoods Security professional, specialized in providing technical leadership and advice to NGOs to determine household food and cash needs and identify appropriate and proportionate means to assist people in both emergency and development contexts. Throughout the past three years, I have contributed to food and livelihood security solutions in both emergency and humanitarian contexts in Mongolia, Northeast Nigeria, Sierra Leone, Central African Republic, Mozambique, Pakistan, Madagascar, DRC, Angola, Bangladesh and Tanzania. I have experience in cash transfer programming and in streamlining the cash transfer value calculation as well as M&E processes to be more technically rigourous. I am a dedicated, dynamic and professional, and I enjoy challenging myself in the work that I do. I have acquired considerable field experience and have received recognition for my ability to lead teams including in insecure and conflict-affected settings. I am able to produce results while being sensitive to cultural perspectives and norms. I am fluent and can communicate clearly in English and French and am proficient (written/spoken) in Portuguese.
