Dear Visitors of our web-site, this is my personal short message to welcome you to our revamped FRAmericas website.danilo

It is also an opportunity to share with you my vision: I favor multi-disciplinary and multi-cultural approaches to tackle the difficult problems faced by the present Knowledge Economy, in the effort to contribute to the attainment of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). I firmly believe that there is great potential in innovation and technology to bring people –particularly those at greatest risk and in greatest need—closer to a better living standard.

I would also like to introduce myself: I would like to be acknowledged as a global development manager with expertise in business, international development and non-for-profit sectors, focused on achieving faster and more inclusive economic growth, with 30 years of experience managing large development projects, impact investments, fundraising and technical cooperation funds to promote ICT and innovation in support of poverty reduction, education and social inclusion. My range of experience involves progressively more complex functions: project work for the development sector (United Nations FAO, 1981-1991); business development for the private sector (Telecom Italia/Telespazio, 1991-1998); program evaluation (European Union, 1997-1998); projects and policy development, strategic advice, thematic funds creation, fundraising, impact investments and brokerage of high profile institutional and sector agreements (Inter-American Development Bank, 1998-2011); management and fundraising in the non-profit sector (FRAmericas, 2011 to present). I lived and worked in the field in Latin America and the Caribbean, Africa, Asia, Europe and the USA.

Enjoy the navigation!
