The GGLN has a new Coordinator

The GGLN Secretariat is pleased to announce that as of 1 November 2017, Monique Damons has been appointed as the new GGLN Coordinator.

Monique has 11 years of experience working in various capacities across public, private and civil society spheres. She has expertise in, among others, research, project/programme conceptualisation and design, project management including monitoring, project management, process facilitation, communications, fundraising, grant management and development writing.

In early 2017, Monique graduated with an MA in Geography and Environmental Studies from Stellenbosch University. Her Master’s study responded to the lack of spatial economic transformation in South African cities. It aimed to provide a deeper spatial understanding of economic inequality in Cape Town, specifically the continued lack of investment and economic growth in poor city areas compared to continued investment and growth in wealthy areas.

Monique was raised and still resides in the Cape Town suburb of Elsies River.
