1. Catholic Relief Services Livelihoods and Landscapes Strategic Analysis. The overall purpose of the project will be to assess and provide recommendations to more effectively engage diverse stakeholders to bring about a system change through strategic dialogue and action. Based on available research, case studies, policy documents, and other resources, I conducted a strategic analysis on the role of government, private sector, other actors, and systems broadly in advancing climate change strategic frameworks and programs, especially forest landscape restoration activities.
