Lauren Pope

I have a background in Political Science and International Relations, completing my undergraduate studies at City University of New York Hunter College (USA) and postgraduate studies at Leiden University (Netherlands). As a young professional exposed to the sector, I have become increasingly focused on working in the water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) and waste management and sustainable development sectors. My personal interests lay in understanding the inter-connectivity between development, climate change and migration.

As a Sanitation Advisor, I contribute to several aspects of WASTE’s FINISH programmes, including project management, communications, media and technical assistance to the FINISH Mondial Uganda country programme. With my vibrant background in the arts industry and international work experiences, I always hope to bring in creative and socio-cultural perspectives to my work.
