Communications and Advocacy for


Twelve years ago, I discovered that my favourite city, Delhi, India, was becoming unlivable for me due to my allergies to smoke, dust, and pollution. Winters were especially difficult, causing sleepless nights and endless coughing fits. This personal struggle made me realize the importance of addressing climate change, even before it became the widely acknowledged issue it is today.

Due to my motivation towards the cause, I have undertaken several campaigns and projects over the years aimed at building climate resilience and adaptation. Currently, at the WFP Innovation Accelerator, I am the communications focal point for several climate change workstreams. Below are some examples of my work with this topic. (41).gif

COP27 & COP28
Since 2022, the World Food Programme Innovation Accelerator has hosted Climate Innovation Centered events at the Conference of the Parties (COP). For COP27 and COP28, I led several communications workstreams, producing content for event-based social media, speakers' talking points, invitations, and more to attract relevant partners. Check out some of the content I co-produced and led below:

Climate Adaptation Innovation Accelerator Programme

The WFP Innovation Accelerator, supported by the Adaptation Fund, has launched the Climate Adaptation Innovation Accelerator Programme under the Adaptation Fund Climate Innovation Accelerator (AFCIA) partnership. This $10 million initiative aims to identify, support, and scale high-impact innovations for climate adaptation in vulnerable regions.

As the programme's communications lead, I am developing an international campaign to attract innovators, entrepreneurs, and changemakers to submit solutions that drive climate resilience in Lebanon, Jordan, and Egypt—our focus for 2024. This five-year programme involves close collaboration with WFP Country Offices to engage local communities and encourage their participation

As the thematic focal point for climate change, smallholder farmers and food systems topics at WFP IA, I produced thought leadership pieces like this connected to the prgramme. I represented the Climate Adaptation Innovation Accelerator for the media and developed a global press release for the same.

I have also been the campaign coordinator for several other WFP Climate Innovation Programmes; be it innovation challenges targeting agricultural resilience or food systems strengthening in times of climate change. (35).gif
