Heidi Mendoza


I am a researcher, and an environmentalist, with strong leanings on climate-smart landscapes, inclusive governance, and sustainable food systems. I have a Master’s degree on development communication, major on environmental science. I anchored my graduate study experience looking at agricultural, environmental, and development issues in an integrated manner, and from an interdisciplinary perspective. I have been working in the development sector for seven years now, and what really keeps me going in this rather challenging sector is the need for tenacity, and the opportunity to contribute to the kinds of futures that communities envision for themselves. I am also particularly interested on harnessing our country’s capacity for inclusive mapping. On the side, I also advocate for #WEARENOTDATA as a reminder that as we go digital, open and big, and as we see the value of data, we must also not forget the core of our humanity.
