As an agronomist with a major in Economics and Politics of Natural Resources, my main professional interest has always been to promote and facilitate the sustainable production of agricultural material – from a technical as well as a socio-economic and a political angle. After graduating, I worked for two years as Associate Economic Affairs Officer for the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), where I was in charge of analyzing the sustainability of the production and use of agricultural raw materials and fisheries in developing countries.
In May 2002, I was recruited by three companies to help establish an organization for pre-competitive collaboration on sustainable agriculture: the Sustainable Agriculture Initiative (SAI) Platform. Since then, the Platform has grown from 3 to almost 100 member companies. I am now in charge of three main streams in the organization: Learning, Development and Implementation. My tasks cover a wide range of programs and projects from developing training material and courses on sustainable agriculture and sustainable sourcing to helping members develop and implement sustainable sourcing strategies as well as managing multi-stakeholder projects on the ground.
Amongst these, the Doñana Strawberry and Sustainable Water Management is one of the most exciting but also, to be honest, most complicated projects. It is one of the very few landscape projects that my organization coordinates, and we are learning as we are doing. But all the group stakeholders are very knowledgeable and committed, and we are making great progress.Emeline Fellus Head, Learning, Development and Implementation,
