Irina Chávez (trainee April-June 2015)

I graduated in International Relations by the University of Puebla (Mexico) and then I spend a year on exchange at the University of Groningen (the Netherlands) where I showed interest on topics related to Development. I decided to go deeper in this field and I took a seminar in International Cooperation for Development by the Universidad Complutense de Madrid.
Currently, I am studying a Master degree in Local Development at the Universita degli Studi di Padova (Italy) thanks to the program PRECIOSA by ERASMUS MUNDUS. This master course has granted me with the opportunity to attend to a seminar in Sudan regarding “Urban changes and social dynamics in Africa” where I learned about the importance of working within an interdisciplinary group analyzing a study case.
Now, I am an intern at CTFC I will be exploring Payments for Ecosystem Services and gaining practical knowledge on social capital in rural areas and its implication in the introduction of a forest policy intrument.
