Managing Cambodia's disaster risk reduction advocacy and communications strategy on behalf of EU-funded NGO consortium and action group.

In English, that means getting all the actors - communities, civil society, donors and the government - on common ground so that Cambodia and its people can be ready for emergencies before they happen.

In my previous lives, I was once a journalist and then a United Nations communications officer. I'm from near London, UK, and I've lived and worked in China, the Netherlands, Germany and Cambodia.
