Mariah Cannon is a Research Assistant with a Masters of International Development. She is interested in sustainable, community-led, environmentally conscious development.

Mariah has two years of overseas experience teaching in Vietnam with a regional intergovernmental organisation which promotes cooperation in education, science and culture throughout Southeast Asia.

In this project, IDS will draw upon and expand its rich experience at the forefront of thinking about participation in development, and our emerging work at the intersection of participation and markets. We will co-create along with the Economic Advancement Program (EAP) at the Open Society Foundations (OSF), a deeper understanding of participation in economic advancement in general, as well as how EAP can bring participatory approaches into its own practice.
