Kevin Carlucci is a development professional with more than 20 years of experience across a diverse set of disciplines, including finance, natural resource management, economic policy reform, and emerging market economic development. He led the establishment of DAI’s first Climate Change practice, learning alongside the U.S. Agency for International Development how climate programming would work in the 2010s. After years of supporting biodiversity, water, and climate programs, in 2018 he moved to Maputo to serve in a technical role—and eventually, Chief of Party—for the Mozambique SPEED+ program, which focused on policy reform in agriculture, land tenure, trade, power, water, and biodiversity. He currently plays a hybrid role as Project Director in the Africa region and Practice Specialist in DAI’s Resilience, Equity, and Inclusion practice.

With a keen interest in integrated programs, Kevin now brings his cross-sectoral expertise to bear on resilience programming that incorporates a mix of social, environmental, and economic safeguards that are critical to weathering all shocks, pandemics to extreme weather events. He has a personal interest in integrated water resource management, climate finance, and improving resource use efficiency.

Proficient in Portuguese and Spanish, Kevin has worked across Latin America, Africa, and Asia.
