Tell us about yourself:
I am Sinovuyo Mbobo from South Africa. I am an Agricultural Economist, working in the climate adaptation space and with an interest in communications. I aspire to become a climate communicator, especially in rural small-scale farming communities by bridging the gap between scientific and local knowledge.
What did you do with the JWH grant?
I took an online course in Climate Change Adaptation in Food Security and Natural Resource Management with the Wageningen Centre for Development Innovation (WCDI-WUR) & College of Agriculture and Environmental Sciences at Makerere University.
What has the leadership development program brought you?
It has brought me a thorough understanding and appreciation of the importance of communicating about climate change in a way that simplifies the scientific jargon so people feel involved and ultimately motivated to act appropriately.
What is your dream?
I aspire to become a climate, communication, and innovation expert so I can meaningfully contribute to a better world through social change and innovation by addressing societal challenges like climate change, poverty, food and water security, and environmental degradation.
