Andrea Egan

Knowledge Management & Communications Specialist

Since 2009 I have worked with UNDP highlighting climate change adaptation and biodiversity projects. My tasks with UNDP have included working on results and knowledge management in the Environment and Energy Group; producing knowledge management and communications products on development projects globally; and bridging the creative media and international development fields (e.g. creating photo essays, producing videos, website development and maintenance, developing project profiles, press releases, fact sheets, and success stories).

Formerly a Pre-Doctoral Research Fellow at Harvard University in the Measurement and Human Rights Program, recent work assignments have included working as a consultant with UNDP’s Ecosystems-Based Adaptation in Mountain Ecosystems Programme, UNDP’s Adaptation Learning Mechanism, the Africa Adaptation Programme and the Secretariat of the Pacific Regional Environment Programme’s Pacific Adaptation to Climate Change Project
