Alex Eastham is the Project Specialist in Regen10, a global multi-stakeholder endeavour that sets out to explore the potential of regenerative food systems through a famer-centric, global and inclusive approach. The role sits within FOLU and Alex will be working closely with partners in different farm and landscape archetypes across the globe to help build an evidence base for how to shift to more regenerative food systems.

Alex has been working in global supply chains and food systems for over a decade. Prior to WRI, Alex was Head of Women and Markets in CARE International’s global Women’s Economic Justice Team. She established and maintained strategic partnerships with key stakeholders, including the private sector and civil society, to influence policies and practices to support women's rights and dignity. She worked in partnership to design and manage strategic programmes on women’s rights from Kenyan growers to Bangladeshi garment workers.

She started her career in a labour rights consultancy working with the private sector, civil society and government to tackle poor working conditions in international supply chains. She had the privilege to speak with hundreds of farmers and workers across the world and managed multi-country programmes to bring stakeholders together to prioritise the needs of farmers and workers.

In her spare time Alex loves to spend time in nature learning about permaculture and forest gardening.
