My motivation for working in clean energy development derives from the way which it is addressing a central and cross-cutting source of unsustainability, but also provides opportunities for improved health and income for the poor.

Merja Laakso has a deep interest in development and environmental issues. She joined REEEP in 2012 to support the Programme Management team with all project-related activities including administrative, organisational and management tasks.

Merja is from Finland and studied Geography and International Relations (Master’s programme on Globalization, Environment and Social Change) at Stockholm University in Sweden.  While completing her thesis for her Master’s degree, she worked with SouthSouthNorth on a REEEP-funded solar water heater project in Lwandle township, Cape Town, South Africa.
