Juan’s passion is helping people to jointly learn to solve a problem in the wider context of agricultural and rural development, facilitating multi-stakeholder learning processes and kick-starting project activities, moving from design to action.
Juan’s background is bi-cultural, Colombian/German; and he graduated in Agricultural Science and International Agricultural Development. Soon after his studies his talent for inspiring learning among people was discovered and he is now over 25 years active in the capacity development field.
What characterises Juan’s approach in ICRA capacity strengthening is that he builds upon the experience and knowledge of the participants, he facilitates a learning process, which goals have been jointly defined with the diverse participants involved, who own the learning programme.
Juan has been a member of the management team since 2017
