Hunger breeds conflict and worsens complex and protracted emergencies. Hence affecting communities by hindering their development, destroying the economy as well as degrading the environment. I believe that sustainable food security is one of the key ingredients to building sustainable community livelihoods and environment hence the development of healthy nations with thriving economies and mostly, peaceful communities. Whether in peace or emergency times, continuous research in the area of food security and sustainable livelihoods is important as findings help leaders develop policies and adaptive approaches that will lead to effective decision making.
I am a disaster manager with a passion for sustainable community livelihoods. My main interest focuses on the development of sustainable food security programmes for populations affected by conflicts and protracted emergencies. After my MSc in Disaster Management at Coventry University, I supported the Centre for Agro-ecology, Water and Resilience (CAWR) team in the ground breaking research into sustainable agriculture as a means to promote food security, reduce socio-economic vulnerabilities and provide a systematic approach to livelihood-based disaster risk reduction programmes in Nakivale Refugee Camp (Uganda). I have also been fortunate to have worked with the World Health Organization, Regional Office for Africa with the Department of health systems development. I am chair and co-founder of a local women information sharing group based in Coventry where members use monthly meetings and social activities to share experiences and challenges of livelihoods as well as discuss way forward to tackling daily life issues, build confidence through awareness activities that targets member’s potential.
