Philip Charlesworth supports the AFDA team of specialists to help strengthen Myanmar’s agricultural market systems and individual market actors, from farmers to exporters, consumers, and many points in between. Philip and the team navigated new project requirements, as COVID-19 restrictions were made more complex by Myanmar’s political instability, with both import and export markets being affected. Originally from Australia, Philip and his family have lived in Asia since 2005, primarily Cambodia, with the past four in Myanmar. He brings a good knowledge of Asian agricultural systems and experience working with a range of government, non-government, and commercial entities. From a USAID perspective, Philip has designed Feed the Future activities in Guinea, Sierra Leone, and Senegal. Philip holds a BS in agriculture from the University of Adelaide (Australia) and a PhD in irrigated agriculture from Charles Sturt University (Australia).
