Vandana Thottoli

Business Advisor - Dutch Fund for Climate and Development

I am currently engaged as a Business Development Advisor at SNV in the Dutch Fund for Climate and Development (DFCD) project, developing a pipeline of innovative water and sustainable land use projects that are bankable in Sub-Saharan Africa. I also advise companies on their sustainability strategy and adoption with specific focus on agriculture, energy, and water sectors.

I have worked extenstively in the area of sustainable production - especially on the topic of farmer-led irrigation development, and developing business models for scaling the uptake of smart water solutions among smallholder farmers in Sub-Saharan Africa.

I hope to use my 18+ years of work experience as a multi-sector development and management professional, to support businesses as they embark on their sustainability transformation journey.

My topics of interest include: #business development, #digitalization, #ESG and impact investing, #PPP's #circularity, #sustainability, #inclusivity
