In April 2014, UNU-IAS began a new talk series in Japanese for students and recent graduates interested in careers at international organizations or in global contexts. UNU CAFÉ invites active members of the international community to share their experiences and engage in lively discussions.
For its seventh session to be held on Wednesday, 8 July 2015, UNU-IAS will welcome Ms. Yoko Watanabe, Senior Biodiversity Specialist at the Natural Resources Team of the Global Environment Facility (GEF) Secretariat. Prior to joining the GEF, Ms. Watanabe worked for the World Wildlife Fund for Nature’s (WWF) Mongolia and US offices, as well as in the Nepal and Mongolia country offices of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP).
At UNU CAFÉ, Ms. Watanabe will be talking about her career path and experience working at GEF and UNDP, and she will be answering questions from the floor.
