Silvia has been with the ILC since 2010. She is currently working with the mobilise team, splitting her time between fostering learning within the network and coordinating the decentralisation of the Land Matrix Initiative. She has played a key role in the Land Matrix since its inception and has also coordinated the ILC research project for the International Year of Family Farming. She is a tree-hugging, nature advocate but her deep passion lies in storytelling through photography.
Silvia graduated in Development Studies - major in Rural Livelihoods - from the International Institute of Social Studies (ISS), The Netherlands.
