Nevelina Pachova holds a Master’s degree in International Development with a focus on environmental economics from the International University of Japan. Prior to joining UNU-EHS, Nevelina worked as a Programme Associate at the UNU Environment and Sustainable Development Programme in Tokyo, where she supported the development and implementation of research and development projects in the fields of land, forest and international water management.
At UNU-EHS, Nevelina is responsible for the regional coordination of a transboundary initiative of the governments of Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan on “Sustainable Land Management in the High Pamir and Pamir-Alai Mountains in Central Asia (PALM).” The project is implemented with support from the Global Environment Facility (GEF) and the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and is executed by UNU-EHS. In the framework of the project, Nevelina provides technical support and back-stopping to the two countries, conducts research on integrated approaches to sustainable land management and poverty reduction in mountainous regions of Central Asia, and supports the development of new initiatives in this field.
