Katharine Vincent

As a director of Kulima Integrated Development Solutions (Pty) Ltd (www.kulima.com), I spend the majority of my time consulting in the fields of climate change vulnerability, adaptation, gender and disaster risk reduction. I work mainly in southern and eastern Africa, where I have firsthand experience of the policy and institutional frameworks around climate change, disaster risk reduction, and food security. Much of my work involves communication, “translating” knowledge typically from the scientific community in a language and format that is appropriate for the end user community (whether that is practitioners, policy-makers, or local communities), which is typically embedded in a process of stakeholder engagement, facilitation, and knowledge management.
