Jessica is a Systems User Support Officer at SAI Platform.
In her role, Jessica supports SAI Platform’s members and partners in their use of the Farm Sustainability Assessment (FSA) programme.
She is interested in how to improve access to quality knowledge and information for farmers and stakeholders, through research, training and institutional development. She believes that ensuring that people have access to the tools and knowledge they need to do their work well can help them to realise their goals and potential, in a way that is sustainable.
She previously worked with Bonsucro in Africa, running Bonsucro’s LEGEND Challenge Grant across six African countries, and was involved in the organisation’s ISEAL funded ‘Good Practice, Better Finance’ project, which is piloting affordable finance models for farmers who perform well against sustainability frameworks. Before this she worked as a consultant with RMI Development, a consultancy which focusses on rural development and preparing smallholder organisations for commercial farming.
