Dr. Elisabeth Hoch

Elisabeth has 15+ years of work experience all over the world as researcher, project manager and senior advisor for the University of Freiburg, GIZ, KFW and since 2022 for Climate & Company. Her range of expertise includes local development and international cooperation, forestry, deforestation-free supply chains and biodiversity. During her PhD in Forestry, she pursued the question of whether it is worth (or not) for smallholders to plant trees in the Amazon. She enjoys fostering impactful collaborative action in global partner networks, where she usually represents the pragmatic voice on how to implement great ideas for a sustainable future.

She is based in Greece, where she lives with her husband and three kids, speaks German, Portuguese, Spanish, English, French, and likes to believe her Greek is slowly improving. She enjoys swimming, working in the quintal (tree-garden) and having a noise-free coffee-break from time to time. Contact: [email protected] anhttps://agrimonera.com
