Senior Programme Officer
Before Joining CAN International, Sindra was a Policy Advisor at E3G where she led research and engagement to transform the way multilateral and national development banks think about cooling in their investment and technical assistance portfolios. Prior to this, Sindra held climate-related roles in academia, policy think-tanks, and trade and international development consultancies. These roles focused on Small Island Developing States where she was responsible for engaging her behavioural economics and psychology background to provide holistic analysis and advice to decision makers.
She has been an Advisor to the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP23) Presidency Chief Negotiator.
Sindra has a PhD in Environmental Policy and International Development from the London School of Economics. She holds an MA with Honours in Psychology and a Post-Graduate Diploma in Science with Honours in Environmental Management both from the University of Auckland, New Zealand.
She is a proud Fijian, a Fellow of the Linnaean Society, and in her spare time she is trying to understand her dog, life and the Universe generally.
