Lili Camacho believes in possibility. Lili envisions a world where everyone’s basic needs are met so they are free to make choices that allow them to live into their full potential. As an economist and environmentalist, her work looks towards improving challenges in communities on a local and global level using design thinking methods that put culture first. Lili has applied her many abilities to projects that affect the society-nature divide. Lili published a book chapter for ASEAN policymakers dedicated to engaging diverse viewpoints on the consequences of hydro dam development in Thailand and Myanmar. Lili has also worked with the international development sector in many ways from M&E to value chain systems; most exciting for her was designing programming for climate change resiliency with communities that allow people to see future possibilities, therefore encouraging stronger agency in their choices today. When Lili isn’t uncovering the lessons that many cultures can teach us, you will find her lifting heavy things at a CrossFit gym or building her own in remote locations she travels to with DSIL.
