Takah brings over 15 years of experience in international development to his role at Environmental Incentives. Prior to joining EI, he provided Monitoring, Evaluation, and Learning (MEL) expertise in roles with Catholic Relief Services, Winrock International, and International Executive Service Corps. Takah has spearheaded efforts to design and implement MEL systems for a range projects across the globe, including anti-human trafficking, anti-child labor, early childhood development, agriculture, and peace building. He began his career in humanitarian assistance working for Jesuit Refugee Service, Refugees International, and International Organization for Migration.
