In that context, she provided support for the project components ‘Biodiversity, Forests and Ecosystems’ and ‘Resilient Food Production’, participating in the planning, preparation and implementation of a regional kick-off workshop in Mexico for funded projects in Latin America and the tendering of technical assistance packages. Most recently, Evelyn worked with the Gender Focal Point on gender mainstreaming in the field of climate protection. Prior to that, she was responsible for network development and public relations in other internships at the German-Ecuadorian Chamber of Industry and Commerce, the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung in Quinto (Ecuador) and the non-profit Food Assembly (Marktschwärmer) in Berlin.

Her main fields of study were Development Policy and International Cooperation in Latin America. During her master’s studies, Evelyn explored environmental problems and social-ecological conflicts and focused on the resistance of affected and mostly marginalised communities. In addition, she has dealt with climate policy issues such as climate justice, ecological responsibility, and socio-ecological alternatives to commodity dependence through her voluntary work with the civil society group YASunidos Deutschland.
