As the Senior Partnerships Advisor for the USAID Oceans and Fisheries Partnership (Oceans), Moore is leading the development of multi-stakeholder partnerships to combat illegal fishing and promote sustainable fisheries management in Asia Pacific through the development and adoption of electronic seafood traceability systems. The USAID Oceans Project works to strengthen regional cooperation to combat illegal, unreported, and unregulated (IUU) fishing and promote sustainable fisheries, in order to conserve marine biodiversity in the Asia-Pacific region. As the Senior Partnerships Advisor, Moore is developing strategic market-driven partnerships and engaging key seafood industry partners to champion traceability, and make responsible purchasing decisions to improve transparency and worker conditions in the seafood industry. Moore is also developing a number of strategic partnerships with technology providers to harness the latest communication technologies and traceability innovations to ensure the successful development, implementation and adoption of traceability and fishery information systems.
Previously, Moore was the Chief of Party (COP) of the $10 million regional USAID MARKET project based in Thailand, which launched several successful regional public private partnerships to improve food security in ASEAN by promoting more sustainable and inclusive seafood value chains through participatory multi-stakeholder dialogue and harmonization of key policies. Moore provided technical and management support for the ASEAN tourism and textiles value chain project.
From 2006-2011, Moore supported the $14 million USAID Competitive Armenian Private Sector project—writing a Armenian Diaspora tourism promotion strategy, forging partnerships between the San Francisco Global Trade Council, Plug & Play Tech Center and the Government of Armenia to promote the country’s high-tech businesses in USA; and organizing a high-tech investment mission for the Prime Minister of Armenia in Silicon Valley.
In Sri Lanka, Moore ran two regional offices, supervised local staff, and oversaw workforce development, livelihood, micro-finance and capacity development grants. Moore began my professional career as a business and community development specialist with the Peace Corps in Armenia, where I worked with businesses, CSOs and universities developing business plans, dual-language curriculum for business training, and village ICT language training centers.
