Annelies Withofs is Programme Manager at the IKEA Foundation since 2014. Ardently working the first years on the ‘Reshaping Humanitarian Response’ portfolio, she now takes that same drive to help shape and implement the Agricultural Livelihoods portfolio strategy. She is particularly inspired by partnerships that will help farmers to transition to regenerative production systems, that will boost a circular economy for food, and ultimately transform the global agri-food system into one that is good for people and planet. Before joining the Foundation, Annelies worked on solar energy, WASH, landscape management and SME development. She holds a Master’s degree in Cultural Anthropology and Development Sociology, with a specialisation in Environment and Development.
