She has clocked up many consultancy projects for NGOs, well known research organisations and the United Nations Development Programme (UNPD) evaluating projects encompassing forest conservation, productive, sustainable development, building of quality activities and the launch of research projects examining sectors with a high environmental impact across the supply chain from producer to buyer and which aim to change production methods. She is also a member, since 2012, of the Groupe National pour les Forêts Tropicales and one of the authors of their 2013 publication: “Tropical forests: progress and new challenges.
