Prior to joining the Grow Asia team, Megan had been delivering successful public and private sector projects in Southeast Asia, Eastern Europe, and the Caribbean for more than 10 years. Most recently, Megan served as the Deputy Chief of Party for USAID Green Invest Asia, supporting the mobilization of $446 million, and unlocking the potential to reduce a projected 156 million tons of carbon emissions through the improved management of 1.7 million hectares of land.
