Wangu Mwangi

Writer/Editor Earth Negotiations Bulletin

Wangu Mwangi has written for and led Earth Negotiations Bulletin reporting teams since 2008. Her areas of specialization include land governance, natural resources management, climate change adaptation, sustainable energy, and African development issues. Wangu has also written broadly on these themes for IISD’s SDG Knowledge Hub, with a focus on tracking progress under SDG 15 (Life on Land), SDG 1 (No Poverty), and SDG 2 (Zero Hunger).

Wangu’s driving interest is supporting community-based organizations to harness and share knowledge, and to tell "stories of change" in compelling and effective ways. Drawing on monitoring and evaluation methodologies, she also supports development partners to better understand how transformative change happens in order to enhance their impact.

Wangu has previously worked as a Communications Coordinator with a Dutch-based research institute of the United Nations University and as a Programmes Coordinator with EcoNews Africa, an African environmental advocacy and community media network. She holds a MA in Development Studies (Institute of Social Studies, The Hague, The Netherlands), Post-Graduate Diploma in Professional Communication (University of Canberra, Australia), and BA in Education (Kenyatta University, Kenya).

A dual Kenyan and Dutch citizen, Wangu combines international consulting work with hands-on farming, with the goal of building an organic-based agribusiness in rural Kenya.
