Sara Sekkenes

Working with UNDP since 2006, Sara now leads UNDPs policy work on efforts to achieve a sustained reduction in the impact and occurrence of armed violence and conflict with specific specialization on arms control and humanitarian disarmament efforts.

Prior to that Ms. Sekkenes worked for a number of years with Norwegian People’s Aid, a non-governmental organisation actively engaged in issues pertaining to the challenges faced by communities and countries affected by the legacies of war. During this time she was based with programmes in Africa (Mozambique 2004-2006, Angola 1998-2000) as well as in south eastern Europe (2001) and also engaged globally working on advocacy and coordination with other NGOs on the global landmine and cluster munitions campaigns.
