Inclusive Economic Empowerment Advisor - World Vision Australia

Professional Bio

Diana Margareth Johannis joined World Vision Australia in 2019 as an Economic Development Advisor, specialising in iMSD. As advisor, Diana is responsible for providing technical advice to grant projects in Indonesia, Myanmar, Cambodia, Papua New Guinea, Timor-Leste and Nepal.

She comes to us with well over a decade of experience in market system development and value chain programming in Indonesia, with a successful private sector career behind her before that. She is currently leading the team's scoping work on green growth/economy.

Diana was intimately involved in World Vision’s first Local Value Chain Development project in eastern Indonesia back in 2009-2012 as the project’s Market Facilitator.
Since then she was promoted within World Vision Indonesia, eventually becoming the National Economic and Livelihood Resilience Team Leader up until 2018. Prior to commencing in this role with the Economic Empowerment Team, Diana had been working for the Australian-Indonesia Partnership for Gender Equality and Women's Empowerment (MAMPU), focusing on gender equality and women’s economic empowerment through market development.
Diana has long been a specialist in Local Value Chain Development and more recently moved her focus to implementing market systems development programming through her work with DFAT’s Flagship MSD facility, the Australia-Indonesia Partnership for Promoting Rural Incomes through Support for Markets in Agriculture (PRISMA).
