Dr. Gustavo Nicolas Paez

I am the current economic advisor of WWF Myanmar, where my role is to support the inclusion of social and livelihood components in conservation projects. Before that, I have been working for the governments of Myanmar and Colombia in topics of public health and demographic dividends, and for the World Bank on Education and Social protection analysis for the Middle East. I am both a practitioner as well as an academic, and my work on topics of gender, labor markets, and more recently COVID impacts have been published in peer reviewed journals. Besides, I also have participated in the creation of chapters of books and manuals, including “Gerencia del Desarrollo Sostenible” which was launched in the ISDRS conference of Bogota, by Universidad de los Andes and has become an important piece on the structuring of Sustainable development concepts for future practitioners.
