Are you passionate about driving a global understanding of sustainability in agriculture and food, especially in the poorest countries?
COSA began with a handful of volunteers committed to finding globally comparable metrics for understanding sustainability in agriculture. Today, as a nonprofit organization operating at the forefront of sustainability, COSA thrives on the gift of skilled volunteers to work together in the virtual space with us in creating a better world. Interested?
Christina Benjamin worked in the Food-Ag sector for 8+ years in various lead roles within food safety. She decided to transition to sustainability and pursued her second Master’s Degree in Sustainability Science and Policy. It was during her thesis research, while engaging with stakeholders on living income and smallholders, that she came across COSA. And when she was looking for a volunteering opportunity post-graduation, she found COSA to be the perfect fit.
From her current location in the state of Karnataka, India, Christina says that her volunteer experience has helped her engage further in the food-ag sustainability sector through COSA’s work on sustainability metrics and indicators. So far, she says “through my research work for COSA I have gained further insights into the fragmented as well as much needed depth and transparency to metrics and indicators in the agri-food sector. I hope to gain the knowledge and discernment to assess and apply sustainability metrics/indicators that are measurable and relevant to create a sustainable world for the environment and farmers.”
Thank you, Christina!
