Christine Fenning


Christine Fenning has been a Researcher at Mokoro since October 2016. Her background in sociolinguistics and education led her into teaching English and French before completing a post-graduate degree in International Relations at the Diplomatic Academy of Vienna. Since 2011 she has worked in the Humanitarian / Development sector, mainly in South Sudan, focusing on reporting, conflict-sensitive programming, programme management and donor/partner relations. Christine has broad experience in research analysis, reporting and information management, as well as experience in monitoring and managing large-scale projects funded by the EU, the Netherlands, DFATD-Canada and DFID; her work has also involved collaborating with various other governments, NGOs and UN agencies. She retains a strong interest in education.

Christine is currently part of a team reviewing the hosting arrangements for Education Cannot Wait, a global fund that was launched at the World Humanitarian Summit in 2016. She is also participating in a summative evaluation of UNICEF’s support to education in Zimbabwe and will soon start work on an evaluation of WFP’s school feeding programme in Ethiopia.
