In his almost 30 years of professional career in development, Mr. Roland Angerer has worked in all continents. Starting with advocacy and development education in his home country Austria, he later joined the UNDP in El Salvador and Honduras and then switched to Africa where he coordinated the programs of an Austrian NGO in Zimbabwe and Mozambique. In 2001, he joined Plan International as Country Director in Colombia and from 2006 – 2010, he headed the country operations of Plan International in India. From August 2010 to December 2013 he served as Regional Director in the Americas and from January 2014 to May 2018 he was responsible for the operations of Plan in 12 countries as Regional Director for Eastern and Southern Africa. Since June 2018, he is the Regional Director for ChildFund International in Asia, based in Bangkok. His academic background – a PhD in Communication Science from the University of Salzburg/Austria and a Masters in Development Management from the Open University/UK – helped him to understand that development is a constant process of evolving attitudes, mindsets and choices for people and requires a continuous and firm rejection of all forms of injustice and discrimination.
