Trevor Galgal is the Senior Program Officer of GGGI’s PNG country programme. Under the supervision of the PNG Country Representative, he oversees the delivery of a component of the Climate Resilient Green Growth Project that aims to generate bankable projects and mobilize financing for those projects, while ensuring key considerations of strengthening partnerships with private sector, and inclusion of women and vulnerable groups in all project steps.
Prior to joining GGGI, he was working with a renewable energy company aiming to establish a 30MW biomass and solar energy power plant in Papua New Guinea. His role was to coordinate and manage the establishment of 16,000Ha of tree plantations in underutilized grassland areas.
His passion for sustainable community development got him actively involved with the University of Melbourne’s Bower Studio, where he built sustainable composting toilets for communities affected by climate change and neo-natal clinics for rural communities in Papua New Guinea.
Trevor holds a Bachelor Degree in Forestry and a Postgraduate Diploma in Agriculture from the Papua New Guinea University of Technology.
