Program Coordinator, São Paulo, Brazil

Camila joined CSF in 2015 to lead a project focused on the ecosystem services affected by a proposed dam in the Brazilian Amazon and how these losses would economically impact the communities in that region. She went on to lead different projects related to infrastructure, fisheries, forest conservation, and others. In late 2016, Camila became CSF-Brazil’s Interim Director, adding fundraising and leading collaborations with governments and international institutions to her role. After completing a fellowship from the German government working on river restoration with local communities, Camila returned to CSF-Brazil in 2019 as a Program Coordinator. Camila holds a Bachelor’s in Biology and a Master’s in Environmental Sciences, both from São Paulo University (USP). Camila’s approach to her work is transdisciplinary, connecting ecosystem services with social preferences, policy and decision making. She also has experience as a trainer and leading field trips.
