Based in Chile. Lorena has worked on interdisciplinary teams with several organizations dealing with rural development. She is an advocate for local and small- scale solutions to global problems, and she believes that ICCAs represent proven examples of that approach, and should be recognized and supported.

In her work for NGOs, she has served as a consultant in international organizations, such as FAO, and has assisted local governments and community-based organizations. Today, she works as an independent consultant, in addition to her part- time work with the ICCA Consortium.
