About Sindra

Sindra has an academic background in economics and cognitive neuropsychology.

She was an Advisor to the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP23) Presidency Chief Negotiator, Ambassador Nazhat Khan, with whom she was able to deepen her knowledge and application of the human rights based approach to climate justice.
