C4D Focus/Experience

I worked as the Communications Officer for the United Nations in PNG from May 2011-Jan 2013 and as the C4D Advisor for ABC International at the Media Development Initiative at NBC in Port Moresby. I spent close to three years as Global Communications Manager for the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) in Bonn, Germany, and during this time I began my C4D Masters at Malmo University in Sweden. I moved to Melbourne in December 2016 to work on a DFAT project, the Labour Mobility Assistance Program, covering 10 countries in the Pacific, and I have now moved on from that project as I enter my final project semester of my masters. I am deeply interested in the professionalization and awareness of C4D in the development community, especially in Australia and the Pacific, and I am looking to explore this in my final project.

  • Hi lisa,

    I saw your post on the C4D Australia page. As part of my PhD research I will be exploring some projects funded through ABC's PACMAS program. While, unfortunately my research won't take me to PNG, I will be spending some time in Fiji and the Cook Islands and am currently in Vanuatu. Would be great to stay in touch.



  • Hi Lisa,

    Grateful for the linkup. I look forward to sharing of experiences. Am physically based in PNG. Have been engaged in this "sector" for several years and am  enjoying it. Currently, CEO of my own social enterprise - Development Communication Solutions Limited. Lets keep the fire alight.


  • Hi Lisa, I worked in PNG for three years in the AusAID HIV and AIDS Program. Finished there in 2010. It is good to connect on the C4D Network. Nidia
