Nathan in an Associate supporting the Measuring Impact II initiative. He brings his experience working with diverse stakeholders on international development programs and impact assessments to his role assisting USAID offices in communication coordination, knowledge management, and capacity building for learning and adaptive management.
Prior to joining Environmental Incentives, Nathan worked with the International Forest Resources & Institutions Network to assess the impacts of industrial agricultural developments on farmer livelihoods and land-use change in Ethiopia and Tanzania. While completing his master’s degree, he worked with ADHENO, an Ethiopian NGO, to evaluate the social and ecological outcomes from farmer training and afforestation programs in the Ethiopian highlands, and designed knowledge management systems for an international development student organization. Previously, Nathan worked in Kibale National Park, Uganda, where he studied chimpanzee sociality and forest ecology.
Nathan’s work is grounded in the belief that for resource-reliant communities, livelihoods and ecosystems are inseparable. He aspires to support integrated conservation and development programs that incorporate traditional ecological knowledge and prioritize social well-being.
