Megan Witwer

Megan was the Program Manager for TCI’s flagship initiative TARINA, from its initiation in December 2015 through July 2018. Based in the TCI Office at Cornell University, she was responsible for liaising with India-based partners, monitoring and reporting on the progress of work, assisting with outreach and communications, overseeing project operations and providing research support where needed. Prior to joining the TCI team, Megan spent three years at the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) in Rome, where she worked to implement the Monitoring and Analyzing Food and Agricultural Policies (MAFAP) program in Sub-Saharan Africa, an initiative funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, FAO, USAID, Dutch and German Development Cooperations. As a Policy Analyst at FAO, she supported partner countries in the analysis of agriculture-related policies and their impact on price incentives for producers, consumers and other actors in key commodity value chains. She has worked closely with research and government institutions in Kenya, Ghana and Tanzania, as well as regional economic communities and civil society organizations to foster evidence-based policy reform. She holds a Master of Regional Planning with a concentration in international studies from Cornell University.
