Katrine Danielsen


Katrine Danielsen has twenty-five years of experience in advancing gender equality and women’s rights in international development. She specialises in several different thematic areas including agriculture, natural resource management, energy, and mining.

Katrine brings to her gender advisory work a strong conceptual and methodological basis from gender, rights and development theory grounded in hands-one experience from development practice with extensive periods of field-work in South Asia and numerous short-term assignments in South-East Asia and Africa. She combines political astuteness with technical skill to successfully translate theory into practical interventions and policies focused on impact and learning. She frequently offers a combination of approaches in her advisory services including capacity strengthening and coaching, participatory organizational change processes (including gender audits), practice-oriented qualitative research and action learning, and facilitation of multi-stakeholder processes for strategy development and policy influencing.

Prior to KIT, Katrine held positions with diverse international organizations including International Labour Organisation (ILO), DANIDA, CARE Danmark, and the Danish Institute for Development Research.
