Our Team

Tina Roner

Tina holds a Master in Sustainable International Agriculture with specialisation in International Organic Agriculture, and a Master in Sustainable Mountain Development. She has been engaged in international development cooperation for many years, and worked in Afghanistan, Bhutan, India, Kyrgyzstan, Peru, and Tajikistan.
