Making climate science understandable and actionable for practice, in particular within international cooperation, has been my main driver for many years. In 2017 I have left academia to join Caritas Switzerland, an international NGO with a presence in some 20 countries of the global South. Serving as a Senior Advisor on Climate Change Adaptation I have supported various Caritas Switzerland projects in Central Asia, Latin America and Africa, ranging from food security to water management to Disaster Risk Reduction. Since December 2019 I head the country programme of Caritas Switzerland in Tajikistan.
